How many Covid-19 vaccines does the world really need? What will it take to address inequality in American health care? And should people be nicer to Moderna?

We cover all that and more this week on “The Readout LOUD,” STAT’s biotech podcast. First, we discuss the latest news in Covid-19 vaccines, including data from Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline, the future of Novavax, and what comes next for Moderna. Then, STAT’s Usha Lee McFarling joins us to talk about a groundbreaking investigation into racial and ethnic disparities in American medicine — and why almost nothing has changed in the 20 years since it was published.


For more on what we cover, here’s part one and part two of the “Unequal Treatment” series; here’s the latest on Covid-19 vaccines; here’s where you can watch “Augmented”; here’s where you can subscribe to the First Opinion Podcast; and here’s our complete coverage of the Covid-19 pandemic.
