Join us for the third event in a four-part WBUR Town Hall series on the science, roll out and safety of the coronavirus vaccine.
Essential workers, prison populations, nursing home residents, the elderly and immunocompromised are first in line for the coronavirus vaccine. Are there other vulnerable populations who should have priority? Should employers mandate vaccinations to protect their workforce? What about those who will refuse the vaccine because of their beliefs?
Endless Thread podcast hosts Ben Brock Johnson and Amory Sivertson, explore the history of vaccine adoption. Then, senior correspondent and host Deborah Becker engages Akilah Jefferson Shah, allergist-immunologist and bioethicist at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, to discuss coronavirus vaccine ethics and equity and take your questions.
