Vaccine Equity with Govind Persad
Overview & Shownotes
Many of us have vaccines on the brain recently–whether because we’ve just received a shot, or because we are trying to access one. Who gets vaccinated and when they get their doses is a decision largely in the hands of state public health officials. Many states use age as the primary factor in determining who gets priority. On this episode of Examining Ethics, Dr. Govind Persad–an expert in bioethics and health care law–argues that legislators should think through more equitable options for distributing vaccines.
