Please note: In the live webcast, Dr. D’Souza said that COVID-19 is the leading cause of death in the U.S. In fact, it is currently the third leading cause of death, after heart disease and cancer. Dr. Dowdy said that the vaccines require two doses spaced eight weeks part. In fact, the Pfizer vaccine requires two doses spaced three weeks apart, and the Moderna vaccine requires two doses spaced four weeks apart. These statements have been edited out of the webcast.
