Covid-19 continues its grip on the Northern Hemisphere alongside news of a vaccine trial showing real success at first glance. In this second wave update, we explore the latest issues with healthcare professionals from primary care, secondary care, and public health, and discuss what is happening in their field, and put their questions to experts. 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, and Nisreen Alwan, associate professor in public health at the University of Southampton. They are joined by Katrina Pollock, senior clinical research fellow in vaccinology at Imperial College London, to talk about: the three vaccines in the news; why different groups may require different vaccines; and how to choose who to get the vaccination first.
