Do you remember being in school and playing the fun communication game called "Telephone". "Telephone" is where everyone sits in a circle and tells the person next to them a phrase or sentence. Then, they repeat what they think they heard to the person next to them. This continue around the circle and so on and so forth.
At the end of the circle, the message has been completely misconstrued and misunderstood to the point it doesn't even remotely resemble the statement. This is what has happened with the misinformation about COVID-19.
When it comes to something new and exciting like a vaccination being discovered, that can happen. ZOe's Pediatrics is not only committed to the battle against COVID-19, but also the prevention and education of the disease.
