Last year, the World Health Organization set a goal of getting 70% of the world's population vaccinated against COVID-19 by June 2022. They will not make that deadline.

Only 52 countries have reached the goal. Host Scott Tong talks to Dr. Krishna Udayakumar, founding director of the Duke Global Health Innovation Center, about the status of the global COVID vaccination effort.

This segment aired on May 2, 2022.
