As the COVID-19 pandemic reaches its one-year mark, vaccination efforts have accelerated across states, reaching over 192 million Americans. The administration of vaccinations marks a new phase in the global pandemic and presents new challenges such as vaccine misinformation, hesitancy, and inequitable access.
