With the arrival of COVID-19 vaccines, you could be forgiven for breathing a sigh of relief that the worst is behind us.

Take a deep breath. The necessity for preventative measures has not left our reality.

In fact, they're as important as they've ever been.

Cases in the U.S. continue to climb, to about 24 million in January with deaths near 400,000, according to Johns Hopkins University, which has tracked COVID-19 from the beginning.

Don't exhale yet.

Like so many, I am cautiously optimistic that finally, with the availability of at least two COVID-19 vaccines, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. The collaboration we saw within the biopharmaceutical industry and with US agencies such as the FDA and NIH to develop and authorize multiple treatments and two vaccines in just one year has demonstrated the potential and marvel of medical science. Under the new administration, I am confident that manufacturers and public officials will work together with urgency to get the vaccine to every citizen who wishes to receive it.
