Dr. Andrew von Eschenbach is president of Samaritan Health Initiatives, Inc. and an adjunct professor at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. He was formerly the Commissioner of the United States Food and Drug Administration from 2006–2009. In this episode, he will discuss COVID-19 vaccines and answer questions on their development, implementation, and impact.
Dr. von Eschenbach marvels at the speed at which COVID-19 vaccines were created. Where it could previously take 15 years to develop a vaccine, these came in less than a year. It was possible thanks to tremendous scientific advances, as well as several regulatory changes that cleared the way for these treatments to come to market faster.
