Although several vaccines for COVID-19 were rapidly created, tested, and received FDA emergency approval, vaccine hesitation remains a massive issue in the United States.

RWE (real world evidence) data might be a solution.
According to Aetion CEO Carolyn Magill, “Americans are understandably skeptical of vaccines developed and approved at a pace never before seen in world history. The effective deployment of RWE technology to assess vaccine safety and effectiveness in real time is the only way to build the public confidence we need to end the pandemic.” Learn more here.
