Getting vaccine distribution right: ideas from health expert Dr. Atul Gawande
When Boston-based surgeon and public health expert Dr. Atul Gawande talks about vaccinating the American public, he's not speaking in hypotheticals. "I'm running vaccine distribution right now with a team of people and a partnership I've put together at Gillette Stadium, Fenway Park, and beyond." And the most important thing about vaccine distribution that Dr. Gawande has learned so far is to know how much vaccine is coming and when. Dr. Gawande's experience has also revealed a fundamental truth about the American health care system: "We're all breakthrough and no follow through." What can be done to get more vaccines into more arms before COVID-19 variants take hold? Dr. Gawande has a variety of ideas and he shares them with Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.
