The Science Behind the COVID-19 Vaccine

Much like everyone, we experienced major transitions in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Agricultural Education and Communication faculty and students at the University of Florida moved from regular in-person classroom-based teaching and learning to fully online education and communication environments. However, undergraduate students in AEC 4035: Communication Practices for Agricultural and Natural Resources remained positive, adjusted several of their final projects, and found ways to document COVID-19’s impacts through photo essays from different perspectives.

A vaccine for COVID-19 is a preventative measure that is currently being developed and tested. Vaccines generally spend a long time in the development process to ensure its safety and effectiveness. Michael Ortega, a University of Florida agricultural education and communication student, complied a story about vaccines and specifically the COVID-19 vaccine.
