In this lesson, you’ll hear from Pulitzer Center grantee Jon Cohen in a recorded webinar titled “COVID-19 Vaccine Efforts: Science Journalist Jon Cohen Explains.” He is a veteran magazine reporter and non-fiction writer specializing in covering epidemics. For past Pulitzer Center projects, he has reported on HIV/AIDS, Ebola, and influenza, and is now a core member of the team from Science Magazine reporting for the project “The Science of COVID-19.” 

In this webinar, part of the Science and Health series from the Pulitzer Center, Jon Cohen focuses his talk on the search for a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. In doing so, you'll learn how the epidemic has spread, how vaccines work, how they're tested, who will distribute them, and what effect (if any) seasonality will have.
