Vaccine Development and Clinical Trials

Why does it take so long to develop vaccines? The COVID-19 pandemic has raised questions about the logistics in creating a new vaccine. Some may be frustrated with the slow pace of research and approval. In this seminar we learned about the process of vaccine development, whether we can speed up the process and get vaccines out quicker, and if there are corners that we can cut in the time of pandemic.
