Pfizer Vaccine

  • On this West Virginia Morning, we bring you three stories about the live-saving COVID-19 vaccines. First, our health reporter June Leffler speaks with infectious disease experts who say the vaccines are safe. Then, we bring you two stories about vaccine hesitancy: how vaccine hesitancy is hindering the vaccination campaign in the Ohio Valley and how Virginia Tech researchers are tackling misinformation.
  • On this West Virginia Morning, we visit Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown where the first doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, developed and rolled out on a record timeline, are being administered to healthcare workers. Also, we hear from an infectious disease expert in Huntington to understand the impact of this major development in science.
