The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized the first COVID‑19 vaccines with more just weeks away. Cigna welcomes the roll-out of safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines, and has trust in the review and approval processes.
“Together, industry and government have responded to this crisis with unprecedented speed, while also safeguarding public health and safety. I’m often asked these vaccines should be trusted. And my answer is ‘Yes.’ I personally participated in one of the clinical trials, understand the FDA’s thorough evaluation process, and appreciate the public openness of drugs companies and the FDA,” said Cigna Chief Clinical Officer, Dr. Steve Miller, during a six-minute video available to view now on Cigna.com.
Vaccines offer hope that this pandemic will someday end. Until then, prevention is key – washing hands, wearing masks, physical distancing, per the guidance provided by local health authorities nationwide, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization. Cigna also maintains a 24-hour telephone help line, 866.912.1687, to allow employees and family members to speak with qualified clinicians about how to cope with anxiety, stress, or other issues related to the impact of COVID-19.
