MVEC podcasts cover a range of topics with world-leading vaccine experts.
In this week’s episode of our COVID19 Road to a vaccine series, our host, Nigel Crawford, speaks to Dr Bruce Gellin. Bruce is the President of Global Immunization at the Sabin Vaccine Institute in Washington. He and Nigel discuss the important topic of vaccine acceptance, including the importance of ensuring immunisation providers understand the vaccine development process, as if they don’t understand it and are sceptical this can have a huge impact on vaccine uptake.
The year 2020 has seen the emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID19), a unique and potentially devastating virus, with no known prevention or treatment. This new SARS-CoV-2 virus has shown to not only have significant international health implications, but also immense psychological and economic impacts. In this series we will delve into the global pursuit of a safe and effective vaccine to prevent COVID19. This is all occurring at ‘pandemic speed’ and MVEC’s new podcast will explore this complicated and multi-faceted process through interviews with a variety of national and international vaccine experts.
