Frontiers of Global Health: Exploring the Ethics of Phased COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

On January 19, 2021, the Center for Global Health Nursing, with moderator and DNP Student Tyler Breier, hosted a panel of leaders engaged in the ethics of COVID-19 vaccine distribution. We welcomed four leaders from different disciplines to discuss the challenges and the ever evolving ethical discussions of vaccine distribution on a wide scale.

Panelists were Claudia Emerson, Director of the Institute on Ethics & Policy for Innovation and Associate Professor at McMaster University, Carina Fourie, Assistant Professor in the Philosophy Department at the University of Washington, Jax Hermer, Equity Officer on the Pierce County COVID-19 Response Team and Sarah Shannon, Dean and Professor at Montana State University College of Nursing.
