The Biotechnology Innovation Organization (BIO), an AVAC member, announced the launch of a new educational website, COVID Vaccine Facts. The goal of the website is to address frequent questions about COVID-19 vaccines and vaccine development, with a specific focus on educating both providers and the general public in the US.
On the website, which is translated in English and Spanish, users will find answers to a number of “frequently asked questions” related to vaccine development, including:
- What is a vaccine?
- How are vaccines developed?
- How is everyone moving so quickly to develop a vaccine for Covid-19?
- How will we know a Covid-19 vaccine is safe and effective?
- When will my family and I receive a vaccine for Covid-19?
BIO will continue to update the website and add new questions in the coming months. The text on this website has been independently reviewed by health experts.
