One Virus, Few Treatments, Many Vaccines: An overview of global COVID-19 treatment and prevention


IGHS Grand Rounds with Dr. Monica Gandhi

What COVID-19 vaccines are currently approved by the World Health Organization? Which ones are imminent? What are the differences between available vaccines? How well do they work? What do we know about the new Pfizer and Merck therapeutics for COVID-19 and their global availability?

Dr. Monica Gandhi answers these questions and more.
