The Vaccine Quest
Last year, the search for a vaccine for COVID-19 got underway worldwide, including here in Singapore at the Duke-NUS Emerging Infectious Diseases Programme.
The process is part detective work, part onerous research, part trial-and-error, with many moments of trepidation and some moments of triumph too. And the work isn't over, even as some vaccines get approval and are being rolled out.
This programme tells the story of how vaccines are developed and addresses some of the facts and fictions, the issues and the collaborative efforts. Following closely the Singapore team, it will also incorporate the stories of some of the doctors and researchers working to save the lives of millions.
