Much of the medical community, including the World Health Organization, warns that during the COVID-19 pandemic erroneous or incomplete information regarding vaccines for the deadly virus has pervaded the public’s purview, and, consequently contributed to much of the population declining or pausing to get vaccinated. A documentary addresses this public perception by tracing the origins of vaccinations, explaining the science behind it and presenting compelling testimonials. Vaccination from the Misinformation Virus will be aired nationally beginning in July on PBS TV and other outlets.

This week the Biden administration announced that an additional 1 million doses of COVID vaccines will be sent to 6,500 pharmacies across the country to ramp up immunization rates. Due to the Prep Act, pharmacy technicians are now authorized to administer COVID and other critical vaccinations in all 50 states – but only after HHS approved immunization training.
