So much has been going on in the COVID-19 vaccine front. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is being administered. Merck pharmaceuticals agreed to help manufacture that vaccine to boost production. Increasing numbers of people have gotten both shots of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines. So what's the difference between all these? What do the numbers mean when it comes to efficacy? To help sort it out I’ve invited Dr. Eric Yager, associate professor of microbiology from the Albany College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
