The coronavirus pandemic will likely end sometime in the next year with news that a vaccine is on the way. In the meantime, Utah lawmakers still must deal with the societal and economic effects.
On this week’s podcast, we speak with Rep. Suzanne Harrison, D-Draper, who is a medical doctor. She discusses whether the state’s response to the pandemic has been effective. And, once a vaccine arrives, how do Utah officials convince people to get inoculated?
Then we’re joined by Rep. Steve Eliason, R-Sandy, who was a participant in the Moderna vaccine trial. Researchers say their vaccine will be 94% effective. Eliason talks about his experience getting the vaccination, and the side effects.
