Penn Science Café: The Global Ethics of Vaccine Distribution
This event is free and open to the public.
The recent announcements from Pfizer and Moderna highlight the record speed at which the race for an effective coronavirus vaccine has progressed over the past eight months. As we near a potential finish line, we face questions of fair and ethical distribution with initial vaccine supplies likely to be limited.
In this virtual Penn Science Café, Professor and Chair of Philosophy Michael Weisberg will be in conversation with Professor of Philosophy Kok-Chor Tan, who recently co-authored a plan for vaccine allocation with Penn’s Vice Provost for Global Initiatives Ezekiel Emanuel and other colleagues.
If you have any questions about the event, please e-mail Amber Grier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since 2005, expert faculty from the University of Pennsylvania have shed a light on their research at the Penn Science Café. Each lecture will provide an opportunity for audience Q&A.
