As new variants emerge people are wondering if they should wait until a more efficacious vaccine is available or if they should go ahead & get vaccinated now?
Answering your questions on #COVID19 vaccines & variants in this episode of #ScienceIn5 is WHO's @doctorsoumya ⬇️
On March 3 the new FSIS Website goes live! We’re counting down the days until consumers and industry have more food safety tools, transparency, and resources available. Stay tuned!
Have you checked the temp in your fridge/freezer lately? To control bacteria in food, control the temps by using an appliance thermometer! Refrigerators should be no higher than 40°F. Frozen food will hold top quality for the longest possible time when the freezer maintains 0°F.
Viruses don’t discriminate and neither should we.
