Dr. Paul Offit on COVID-19, Vaccines, and the History of Medical Innovation
In this episode of SoundPractice, we welcome Paul A. Offit, MD. Dr. Offit is the Director of the Vaccine Education Center and an attending physician in the Division of Infectious Diseases at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
Dr. Offit offers a historical view on vaccinations mixed with cutting edge COVID-19 research. He also discusses the misuse of the terms, “vaccine hesitancy,” and “breakthrough cases.”
He’s the author of the recently published new book, You Bet Your Life: From Blood Transfusions to Mass Vaccination, the Long and Risky History of Medical Innovation. In his book he covers nine (9) medical advances that have caused us to live 30 years longer than we did 100 years ago…and the human price to pay for knowledge.
Dr. Offit’s perspective is intelligent, informed, and one that needs to be heard. His thoughts on COVID-19 will better equip you to interact with patients and the public, while functioning as a physician leader.
