GSK on COVID and vaccine development: the pharmaphorum podcast

In the latest episode of the pharmaphorum podcast Dominic Tyer speaks with GlaxoSmithKline’s Philip Cruz about the discovery and commercialisation of new vaccines in the light of the pandemic.

Philip who is vaccines medical director for the UK and Ireland, and a paediatrician by training, tackles the clear pre- and post-COVID differentiation seen in approaches to vaccines.

They also talk about the impact anti-vaxx misinformation has had on vaccine uptake in recent years and what impact COVID has had on that.
