Making Sense of...Vaccine Distribution

In an effort to cut through the seemingly endless stream of news we're faced with, IDHE periodically releases short discussion guides, called "Making Sense of..." These short pieces are meant 1) as a way to become quickly acquainted with an issue, 2) see what people are reading on the topic, and 3) as a way to begin a conversation, using some discussion framing questions. These guides are meant for use by anyone, but in particular we encourage use by college faculty (in classrooms and in disciplinary clubs) and in co-curricular campus settings.
This edition deals with a topic on the mind of many, vaccine distribution. How does the COVID response fit into the historical use of vaccines? How does the current effort compare with past rollouts? In this guide, we offer a starting point for readings and conversation. Please use this guide in and out of the classroom at your institution and share widely. If you have any questions or comments about this guide, please do reach out to our team at IDHE@tufts.edu.
