The whole planet is waiting for a pandemic vaccine. Many governments signed pre-buy deals with pharmaceutical companies, many of whose are frantically working to win the race for the first Sars-Cov-2 jab. Nevertheless, it’s not a secret for all experts that it is hard for a safe and effective vaccine to be developed in such a short time. Also, the industry was so far unsuccessful when it tried to come to a vaccine for other Coronas. So, how can an investigative journalist work on this issue of such a big public interest?
Rebecca Chandler will tell us what we do know and what we don’t when a vaccine is approved by the regulatory authorities. She will give us an overview of how we learn more after approval. With her help, we’ll put together the areas of interest and worry for muckrakers to dig deeper on, in the context of Covid19 vaccines.
