In Conversation with Stephanie Nolen: Reality check about “global” COVID-19 vaccine production

November 1, 2021

Award-winning journalist Stephanie Nolen joined AVAC on Thursday to discuss the findings and backstory of her recent New York Times investigation,”Here’s Why Developing Countries Can Make mRNA COVID Vaccines.”

In this webinar, Stephanie, AVAC and partners explored where we are in the fight to bring COVID mRNA vaccine manufacturing to the places where doses are needed most, in countries where vaccine access has been grievously stalled. We talked through her report and the parallels with HIV.
