Mutant Variants Vs. Vaccines

The B117 UK Covid19 variant is more contagious and virulent than its predecessor. Can it challenge vaccines as it tries to become the dominant strain by summer? This segment of FNX Now produced in partnership with Ethnic Media Services (EMS) will discuss whether or not the U.S. can achieve herd immunity before variants like B117 prevail. Our guests are Dr. Nirav Shah, Adjunct Professor of Medicine, Primary Care & Population Health at Stanford University, and Dr. Daniel Turner Lloveras, Founding Member of the Latino Coalition Against COVID-19. Dr. Shah will present an overview of the Vaccine vs. Variant discussion and Dr. Turner Lloveras will address vaccine inequity in some minority communities.
