Making a billion doses of vaccine in 18 months: starting with two tablespoons

5 min read


Most would say it’s impossible.  But it happened.  Some truly amazing, outstanding people rose to the challenge of developing a vaccine to combat Covid-19.  They saw opportunity and solutions, not problems.   They collaborated, not only with their scientific colleagues, but with governments and manufacturing facilities; sharing information, effort and a vision of delivering.  And they did it! They rolled out a (hopefully not just once!) once in a lifetime life-saving vaccine in under 18 months.  Hopefully we can learn from these phenomenally dedicated people just how we can make a difference when we work together and use that knowledge to make the world a better place for everyone.

Catherine Green is one of the three women in this pioneering team of seven at Oxford University who were recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.   In her book – Vaxxers: The Inside Story of the Oxford Vaccine and the Race Against the Virus Catherine reveals the inside story of how this was achieved and also shares with audiences this incredible real-life miracle.
