KIRO Radio’s Dave Ross and reporter Aaron Granillo cover the encouraging early results of the Pfizer vaccine trial, and chat with Dr. Julie McElrath. She’s leading one of three major vaccine trials in Seattle and looking for volunteers.

And Dr. Stephen Anderson from MultiCare Auburn Medical Center has been working on the front lines in the emergency department throughout the pandemic. He joins us to explain just how serious the third wave of the virus is for Washington state, and the conversation convinces both Dave and Aaron to change their Thanksgiving plans.

If you’d like to get involved in a vaccine trial, you can find more information here.
