How COVID Vaccine Trials Work

William Hartman on Vaccine Trials

We spoke with Dr. William Hartman, assistant professor of anesthesiology at the University of Wisconsin at Madison’s medical school and the principal investigator for the phase 3 trial of a potential COVID vaccine developed by the Jenner Institute and AstraZeneca. We talked about the vaccine, how it works, what the trial process means, what the timeline for production might be, and a whole slew of related issues.
