Doctors and scientists have worked day and night to create a vaccine, and now we need to distribute this around the world, safely, quickly and fairly. Global supply chains will be tested, and we’re excited to see them rise to the challenge! Experts say that the biggest challenge was not creating the vaccine, but rather what comes next in order to get it to where it needs to be.
