NEBGH Medical Director’s Monday COVID-19 Update: Special Guest is Moderna’s James Mansi

With new COVID variants here and on the horizon, how should employers be thinking about vaccine strategies for the fall?  It’s been said that “we can’t boost our way out of this pandemic,” so what, exactly, is the plan? How should employers be thinking about vaccines and boosters for both adults and children?
