As the rollout of the U.S. COVID-19 vaccine program continued and questions remained about how allocation can simultaneously reduce risk and inequity, Penn LDI convened the video series, COVID Vaccine Equity Research Dialogues (CoVEReD).

Hosted by Penn LDI Senior Fellows and vaccine policy experts Alison Buttenheim, PhD, MBA and Harald Schmidt, PhD, the series brought together top experts to discuss equitable vaccine distribution.
