COVID-19 Vaccination: How and When will the U.S. get it?
A discussion of the state of the Coronavirus Vaccination

Gina Kolata is an author and reporter for The New York Times, focusing on science and medicine. Her research and articles on stem cell research, new cancer treatments, exercise, cloning, diet, nutrition and more, have influenced public policy and upended conventional wisdom. 

She is the author of six books, the most recent of which is Mercies in Disguise: A Story of Hope, a Family's Genetic Destiny, and The Science That Saved Them.

Kolata’s articles for The New York Times have led her to be a Pulitzer finalist twice — for investigative reporting in 2000 and for explanatory journalism in 2010. Other writing awards include ones in 2010 from the Silurian Society for a series on the war on cancer and from The Associated Press Sports Editors for writing about the Caster Semenya intersex controversy at the world track championships.

In previous years she has received awards from other groups, including the American Association of Health Care Journalists, and the University of Maryland, which gave her a Distinguished Alumnus award. Bowdoin College awarded her an honorary doctoral degree. And she was made a Kentucky Colonel, just like Col. Sanders.
