[ONLINE] - What We’ve Learned From the Vaccine Rollout So Far


The COVID-19 vaccine rollout is behind schedule, hitting snags across the country as the federal government and states scramble to navigate inadequate supply, logistical bottlenecks, and wrenching decisions about whom should be prioritized, and in what order. Join Future Tense and New America's Public Interest Technology program as we check in with Helene Gayle and Atul Gawande to discuss the principles that should inform an efficacious and equitable vaccine distribution, and what we can learn from the initial stages of the rollout.
