SPH alumna Dima Qato, PhD in Health Policy and Administration '11, was quoted by The New York Times on Walgreens' current practice of spacing Pfizer vaccines for COVID-19 to a period of four weeks, rather than the recommended three, due to the company's scheduling software.  Qato is currently the Hygeia Centennial Chair and associate professor of pharmacy at the University of Southern California.
