GovExec Daily: The State of Vaccine Progress
Dr. Jessica Holzer joins the podcast to discuss public health and the pandemic.
In the spring, President Joe Biden set a goal of 70% vaccination American rate for by July 4th. While that mark has not been met, states like Vermont and Massachusetts have surpassed that number. As the White House celebrates the so-called “summer of freedom” and states continue to relax pandemic restrictions, there are concerns that new variants can reignite the crisis.
Dr. Jessica Holzer is an Assistant Professor in Health Sciences at the University of New Haven and is an expert in public health. Her most recent work on maternal morbidities in the postpartum period has received awards and recognition from the American Public Health Association. She joined the show to discuss the state of vaccines as we passed the July 4 White House deadline.
