The true cost of vaccine protectionism - #TheAgenda with Stephen Cole
CGTN Europe • 1m 21s
The Agenda's Stephen Cole is joined by Pieter Cleppe, Editor-in-chief of Brussels Report and Professor Lawrence Young, virologist & specialist in molecular oncology at the University of Warwick to discuss the potential pitfalls of prioritising competition over cooperation in the distribution of COVID-19 vaccines.
France and Germany have both witnessed vaccine hesitation within their populations. We ask Pieter Cleppe, Editor-in-chief of Brussels Report, about why that might be, as well as whether Brexit is to blame for a seemingly cold reception towards the UK’s AstraZeneca jab.
How do the EU and UK vaccine rollout strategies compare? Are there more concerns about the UK-made AstraZeneca jab than other COVID-19 vaccines? And how damaging is vaccine nationalism? We find out from Professor Lawrence Young, virologist & specialist in molecular oncology at the University of Warwick.
