Episode 82: My Very Basic Vaccine Qs Answered

Hello and welcome to The Moving Curve. I’m Rukmini, a data journalist based in Chennai. Twice a week on this mini-cast, I consider one question around the novel coronavirus epidemic in India. Tonight I’m considering this one — what can India’s history of vaccines tell us about the way forward?

This is Dr Shahid Jameel.

And that’s where all the checks and balances in the regulatory process that people like Dr Jameel have been pushing for come in. In our desperation for a vaccine to be developed as fast as possible, there’s a whole history of evidence that we need to make sure isn’t forgotten.

Thank you for listening. This episode was edited by Anand Krishnamoorthi. At the end of the week— a new question.
