Event Description:
About the Program: 120w, 275w" sizes="(max-width: 250px) 100vw, 250px" style="box-sizing: border-box; -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased; text-rendering: optimizelegibility; border: 0px; vertical-align: bottom; max-width: 110%; float: left; margin: 5px 20px 15px 0px;" />Recent history has witnessed a remarkable example of private industry’s effective response to a health crisis. On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization’s Country Office in the People’s Republic of China first picked up on a media statement by the Wuhan Municipal Health Commission on cases of ‘viral pneumonia’ in Wuhan, People’s Republic of China.[1] On December 11, 2020, – less than a year later – the FDA granted emergency use authorization (to an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech.[2] Big Pharma identified a new pathogen, found an immune response against the pathogen, and developed and tested a safe and effective vaccine in record time.[3]

Join the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity on Wednesday, February 24th as we welcome a panel of business, public health, and policy experts to discuss the creation of COVID-19 vaccines and their subsequent distribution. Speakers will examine the roll Big Pharma played in developing the various vaccines and their decision-making to determine how the vaccine is delivered and who will receive it.
