What’s Bedford Thinking ~ About Vaccines?

Print More

Vaccines have been in the news again.

There is a report in The Washington Post today, “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is telling state health officials to be ready to distribute a coronavirus vaccine to health-care workers and other high-priority groups as soon as Nov. 1, heightening fears that the agency is under pressure to approve a vaccine before Election Day. Some scientists warn that granting emergency authorization to a vaccine before clinical trials are complete could pose safety dangers and inflame anti-vaccination sentiment — but others say that doing so could save thousands of lives.”

What’s Bedford Thinking?

The Citizen’s current snap poll asks How comfortable would you feel getting a Covid-19 vaccine if it had received an emergency use order before the election but before it has been fully tested?

To weigh in on this important question, you’ll find the poll in the right-hand column of our website www.thebedfordcitizen.org (or near the bottom of a full ‘scroll down’ on your phone). The poll will be open until 5 pm on Wednesday, September 9.
