A recent Business Insider article focuses on what it feels like to administer COVID vaccines. Experiences from practitioners in four states highlight the hope and excitement at vaccination centers across the country.

In the article, MSK’s Dr. Allison Betof Warner discusses how the pandemic shifted the focus of her work from melanoma treatment and research to COVID care. She is now vaccinating staff and cancer patients, and has found the experience rewarding and emotional:

“The opportunity to really be part of the solution and be on the frontline, not only caring for these patients, but now fixing the problem and helping prevent more patients from getting COVID —  this is why you go to medical school. These are the moments that you dream about.”
