BD Volunteers Administer COVID-19 Vaccinations, and Hope, from Coast to Coast

BD has received more than 1 billion orders for needles and syringes to support global COVID-19 vaccination planning efforts. Behind each injection device is a story – a frontline worker tirelessly providing life-saving care or an at-risk individual who has been waiting to see her grandson for the first time. Knowing the impact that our medical devices and technologies can have in improving the lives of patients is what drives us every day to help fulfill our purpose of advancing the world of health.
