Curated public health stories for this week from my reading shelf for Week 17 of 2021. 


This figure is a graphic describing how vaccination reduced the risk for COVID-19 hospitalization among adults 65 and older.

More details in the MMWR available here.


A beautiful visual story on “epidemics that didn’t happen” from Resolve To Lives. This piece also offers key lessons learned and preparedness factors that prevented each epidemic from happening. Must read for any public health afficianodos.


A fascinating NY Times story on how Pfizer COVID vaccine is made, distributed, and administered. It never ceases to amaze me how many different things have to work together in tandem to get this all right.
