Sensemaker Live: Operation vaccination – is the rollout plan working?

Sensemaker is in partnership with Santander

You wait 9 months for a vaccine then three come along at once. The scientists have done their job. Now it’s down to supply chain, logistics, communications and planning to get it into people’s hands, or arms. Why are some countries doing it so much better than others? Are the worst predictions about rich countries jumping the queue coming true? How long will it realistically take to start making a noticeable difference to infection rates and lockdown restrictions? Who designed the priority group system, and how fair is it?
