Peter Hotez, M.D., Ph.D.Professor of Pediatrics and Molecular Virology, Baylor College of Medicine
Apoorva MandavilliScience and Global Health Reporter, The New York Times
The life-or-death race to develop a safe, effective vaccine against COVID-19 is one of the greatest scientific endeavors ever undertaken. Thanks to the efforts of scientists around the world, we now have not one but multiple vaccines. Despite this triumph, many questions and hurdles remain in distributing those vaccines and ending the pandemic.
In this virtual conversation, New York Times science and global health reporter Apoorva Mandavilli will chat with Peter Hotez, dean of Baylor University’s National School of Tropical Medicine, about the COVID-19 vaccines. They will discuss the science behind the vaccine and address the public’s questions, concerns and misunderstandings. For example, is one vaccine better than another? Can the vaccines damage our DNA? What’s in the vaccines? Should anyone not get the vaccine? This presentation will fill you in on what’s going on now and where we need to get.
