1 Credit CME

Seldom does a vaccine researcher’s job include calling city hall, big-box stores like Walmart and Target, and the US Postal Service. But Ann Falsey, MD, had those tasks on her to-do list in June as she prepared to recruit volunteers to test potential vaccines for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Falsey, of the University of Rochester School of Medicine, hoped large employers in her area would publicize vaccine trials to their essential workers, many of whom are Black or Hispanic.
