Been There, Done That: Pandemic Podcast - S5E3 Elana Been There, Done That: A Pandemic Podcast

    • Documentary

Listen to Elana share what the initial vaccine roll out has been like New York City. What are some of the hurdles and challenges to this initial process so far? How are some of the pre-pandemic inequities (based on class, race, ability, language, internet literacy and on) showing up and causing issues in this current vaccine dissemination process? We talk about what is really at the heart of so many frustrations with folks, "cutting the line," for getting access to the vaccines. HINT: It's not about the length of the lines or the roll out overall once the vaccines are delivered. And finally, we talk about what we want to make sure we learn from earlier historical moments. What did the post 9/11 moment teach us about what we need to NOT do in the coming post-insurgence and post-pandemic times?
