Join Native News Online Publisher Levi Rickert on this week's Native Bidaské as he interviews Tamara Zangrilli on her participation in the maternal respiratory syncytial (RSV) vaccine trial. 

RSV is the leading cause of lower respiratory tract infections in babies worldwide, killing an estimated 13,000 infants younger than seven months old every year. Zangrilli was one of 7300 pregnant people in 18 countries who participated in the clinical vaccine trial led by Pfizer.
