COVID-19 vaccines and hope for our healthy future
By Peggy Fudge, Medical Technologist, MT(ASCP), MS
Monday, December 14, 2020 -- Today I thank God for the blessings of science and technology - not just for the vaccine received today, but for the work of generations of scientists who saw the potential of vaccinations and were unflagging in their efforts to help humanity.
As glad as we are for the relief from covid, we should keep in mind that the incredibly rapid development, testing, and production of this vaccine will foster even more improvements the next time we are in need of a medical miracle.
That's the way good science works - it doesn't 'dead end'. There's always a sharp, creative scientist who sees a world of hope and possibilities in a small detail of work already done.
I hope one of the benefits to come out of this crisis is a lot of kids pursuing a career in STEM. Imagine all the kids who will say, 'I can do that - I can help!'
