As the first people outside of a trial have started receiving Pfizer's sars-cov-2 vaccine, including Matt, but that's not the end of the story for the pandemic, there are still logistics of rollout, plus treating those who have already contracted the disease. In this podcast, Fiona Godlee, editor in chief of The BMJ, talks to Matt Morgan, a consultant in a intensive care medicine in Cardiff, and Helen Salisbury, GP in Oxfordshire. They discuss why it's impossible to get the vaccine into care homes, because of the need for very low temperature storage, why the survival rate in ICU has gone down, and how messaging on the non-vaccine ways of preventing spread need to be tightened up, especially now.
