    Thank You so much for all that you folks have done. I will be 98 in October, will people in our age group be able to get the vaccine when it is ready? I am in fairly good health and still sound of mind.

      Thank you, Grace. We appreciate your kind words. Scientists and public health experts are currently discussing how a safe, effective COVID-19 vaccine will be rolled out in the United States, once it becomes available. Certainly, older adults are a critical patient population to reach, regardless of age. That will be a key consideration in our planning discussions. Thanks again for your kind note. Stay well!

    I was interested in being a part of the trials as a minority in my late 50s with hypertension, Cholesterol, and thyroid. Otherwise, I’m in good health.
