WHY: The COVID-19 vaccine is a lifesaving development. Vaccinations have saved hundreds of millions of lives over the last century. Scientists have developed vaccines for Smallpox, Polio, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Hepatitis, Meningitis and more. Data from clinical trials indicate a 95% efficacy rate for Pfizer’s vaccine, a 94.5% efficacy rate for Moderna’s vaccine and a 90% efficacy rate for AstraZeneca’s vaccine.

HOW: No person can be billed for the COVID-19 vaccine. Three of the four most advanced vaccines require two doses that are administered at least 21 days apart. It is important patients return for the second dose to develop the highest level of immunity.
