SARS-CoV-2, as an RNA virus, has marked capacity for mutation and recombination events. How do we build an efficacious and safe vaccine against it? How could we safely speed up development? Is a vaccine neutralizing the spike protein enough? Dr. Greg Poland returns to give you an update from the front lines of research on vaccine development and ongoing clinical trials.
