Caregivers reflect on pandemic and, now, vaccine access

The year 2020 was long for everyone, especially for healthcare workers on the front lines of treating people with COVID-19.  That's why clinicians everywhere rejoiced as soon vaccines were authorized for emergency use.

So far, UW Medicine has administered more than 52,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccines.

In this video, several UW Medicine employees look back on this challenging year in healthcare and their hopes and expectations for the future.
