The COVID-19 Vaccine: A Warm Welcome or the Cold Shoulder?
The COVID-19 virus has all but stopped the world in its tracks. Given current predictions, COVID-19 will continue to impact us for months, if not years, to come, permeating virtually every facet of daily life. With the death toll continuing to rise, an effective vaccine is increasingly seen as the best, most viable solution to curtailing the spread of the virus. With the race to a vaccine in what appears to be its final stages, much attention has been given to its development, safety, and distribution.
However, in much the same way that facial coverings and social distancing have been coopted by partisan politics, fears are rising that the COVID-19 vaccine is becoming as much a political tool as it is a matter of public health. This, along with the continued rise of vaccine hesitancy and mounting support of conspiracy theories surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine, coalesce into a topic of both significant interest and importance.
With our speakers, we want to explore the potential reception of the COVID-19 vaccine in both the United States and Europe, as well as discuss possible opportunities for transatlantic collaborations in the vaccination effort.
