Facts Over Fear: Preparing for the COVID-19 Vaccine Across TN

The first vaccines to combat COVID-19 have been distributed around the state over the past month, and many Tennesseans have questions and concerns. To assist our fellow physicians and clinicians, TMA partnered with the Tennessee Department of Health to create and make available a CME class focusing on the science and types of technology of the new COVID-19 vaccines. An unrestricted educational grant provided by the BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Foundation supports this project.

They have enlisted Dr. Buddy Creech, MD, MPH, Vanderbilt vaccine research program director, and Dr. Michele Fiscus, MD, FAAP, TDoH's immunization program medical director, to lend their knowledge on the subject and be featured in this course. There is no cost, and you can access it anytime.
