Bray-born Dr David Dowling is an immunologist and vaccinologist working at Harvard Medical School. This week he joined Jarlath for a fascinating discussion on all things vaccine-related. David calmly and clearly discusses the realities of finding a vaccine, the various strategies that may be taken along the way and the promising data that is being seen. In these incredibly uncertain times, David's reassuring and informed discussions on how the most vulnerable are considered during the vaccine creation process and his words on the potential of COVID-19 to survive on outdoor surfaces in the sunlight certainly give us reasons to be hopeful.
