Amid hesitancy among racial and ethnic groups about vaccine safety, medical schools and university hospitals turn to community partners, trusted minority leaders, and media platforms to explain the science behind the shots. https://t.co/iFnGrW9u5b

Good morning America! You all seem thrilled about Biden’s moon rock. Its symbolism, of the scientific and exploratory achievements that have been made – and will ideally soon be surpassed – certainly hits home. What you might not know is that rock has an *epic* backstory. 1/x https://t.co/PACzEwzr7v

There's a moon rock in the White House. The trip across the Mall was the shortest journey for this space traveler who was collected during the Apollo 17 moon landing. A fascinating thread about this unassuming memento and what it means and symbolizes. @ChasingMoonBk @BookLockdown https://t.co/0kgkk6r8R8

Merck has pulled the plug on not one but two coronavirus vaccines in clinical trials. Here’s my report: https://t.co/RnctVxN2He We’re up to three abandoned vaccines on the @nytimes tracker https://t.co/v45MRgj80t

New Saturday morning reading: debut newsletter from @sandrogalea starts with his useful piscine metaphor on how the impact of a healthy environment differs from the impact of science and medicine on individuals’ health. Spoiler: we need both. @busph https://t.co/jk10A4URNY

#Healthequity in pandemic preparedness requires:

Strong #publichealth infrastructure

We are eager to work with the administration, the new Congress, and leaders in #healthcare on this important plan. Learn more about how resources to combat #COVID19, facilitate economic recovery, and promote racial justice could impact impact #acadmed: https://t.co/0wayt9XT3C

Quoted @POTUS

We don't have a second to waste when it comes to getting this virus under control. That's why today, I'll be signing executive actions to expand testing, administer vaccines, and safely reopen schools and businesses.

The AAMC appreciates the new admin's commitment to containing the #COVID19 pandemic. The actions yesterday regarding issues like vaccine distribution, testing, #publichealth infrastructure, and addressing equity will help ensure that our country is on the right path to recovery. https://t.co/8FkkedNtvp

Scientists praise US president’s selection of Alondra Nelson, a specialist in bioethics and social inequality, to help lead the Office of Science and Technology Policy. https://t.co/NaU1ygfJoc

Equity is at the core of our COVID-19 response. That's why today, I signed an executive order to establish the COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force, protect those most at risk, and address racial and other disparities.

As @CDCgov Director, I promise to lead CDC through science, trust, transparency, and communication because this is the only way to have breakthroughs, deliver hope, and bring our nation back to full strength.

"The idea that you can get up here and talk about what you know, what the science is and know that's it. let the science speak. It is somewhat of a liberating feeling," Fauci said.

It sure does feel great to abandon the defense and come at #healthequity from a stance of support, (guarded) optimism, collaboration and innovation. Let’s use this opportunity to broaden the base of support for #healthjustice beyond us usual folks. https://t.co/whfQmL3WVn

Here's a great overview of @HHSGov rules issued by the Trump administration that are subject to a 60-day pause. From @fawnjohnson and the @BLaw health editors. https://t.co/A7a6lZxXiC

The AAMC is pleased with the direction of several early executive actions that address issues of racial equity and support for underserved communities. There's more to be done! https://t.co/k8sqjT5eu5

Quoted @nytimes

On his first full day in office, President Biden plans to go on the offensive against the coronavirus with a national strategy. The highly coordinated response includes ramping up the production of test kits, vaccines and protective gear. https://t.co/02ba5dYKWm

Good morning America. At long last, you get a National Strategy to tackle COVID today. This isn’t going to be easy, and it isn’t going to be fast — sadly many more losses ahead. But we’re going to have a plan and we’re going to take this on full bore. https://t.co/TpTcyJn7Xh

Memorials matter. There has been no center of grief during this pandemic. The virus has kept us apart, meaning so much of our unimaginable loss has taken place behind closed doors. We haven’t been able share our grief. https://t.co/Ed8GalJc94
