Dr. Teresa Lambe

The Ethical Vaccine

WATCH: The Ethical Vaccine

These talks was recorded and available to watch on this page and on Galway International Arts Festival's YouTube channel. All First Thought Talks will be available to listen to on GIAF's First Thought podcast later this year.

Dr. Teresa Lambe was in conversation with Paul Cullen, Health Editor with the Irish Times. Dr Lambe attended via video.

The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, invented in Oxford University, was the only one where a guarantee was given by the makers to keep it at cost price to make it affordable and available to people around the world. Irishwoman Dr. Teresa Lambe was one of the team which created the vaccine; she was a crucial part of the overall miraculously fast discovery of vaccines which are now protecting the world from a deadly virus. She will tell us about that experience, and the ethical principles which underpin the distribution of the vaccine.
