I’ve got some topical reads for this week, all about vaccination and COVID-19 in particular:
A Shot to Save the World by Gregory Zuckerman is the story of COVID-19 vaccines and the race to produce a successful one in record time. It sounds very dramatic with negotiations, clashes and ambition but also shows the amount of time, effort and testing that went into the research.
The Vaccine by Joe Miller with Dr Özlem Türeci and Dr Ȗgur Șahin is about the scientists who came together to start work on a COVID-19 vaccine. Their end result was the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.
The First Shots by Brendan Borrell is about the development of the COVID-19 vaccine and the competition to produce one alongside political upheaval in the US. It discusses Operation Warp Speed, the companies involved in development and those on the ground investigating COVID-19.
