A vaccine expert on the politics of ending the COVID-19 pandemic
The vast majority of Canadians are still waiting, many with increasing impatience and frustration, for their turn to get vaccinated against COVID-19. But vaccine expert Dr. Peter Hotez argues that bigger impediments to ending the pandemic lie in people who will not get vaccinated, and the billions globally who won't have access to vaccines for months or years to come. Hotez, who is Dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine and the author of "Preventing the Next Pandemic", joins Piya Chattopadhyay to talk about what's at stake — and what he thinks needs to be done to truly get this pandemic under control.
