For almost a full year the world has been waiting and hoping, as scientists work to develop a vaccine to combat COVID-19. Now, at last, vaccines are starting to be distributed, but questions remain. When will I get mine? How safe is it? What does it take to efficiently produce and distribute these vaccines to billions? These questions aren’t new. Join us as medical microbiologist Tom Thomson and History Center Executive Director Carol Summerfield explore the history of vaccines - from some of the earliest treatments 2000 years ago, to Jonas Salk and the Polio pandemic, to today.
