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.
