Wall Street Journal reporter Gregory Zuckerman introduces us to some of the key players, people who had mostly toiled in obscurity, in the book A Shot to Save the World: The Inside Story of the Life-or-Death Race for a COVID-19 Vaccine.
The people profiled put a lot of work into vaccine technology that paid off when the world really needed a vaccine.
