Brendan Borrell, “The First Shots: The Epic Rivalries and Heroic Science Behind the Race to the Coronavirus Vaccine”

In conversation with New York Times Health and Science Reporter Apoorva Mandavilli

Award-winning journalist Brendan Borrell brings the defining story of our times alive through compulsively readable, first-time reporting on the players leading the fight against a vicious virus. “The First Shots,” soon to be the subject of an HBO limited series, draws on exclusive, high-level access to weave together the intense vaccine-race conflicts among hard-driving, heroic scientists and the epic rivalries among Washington power players that shaped 18 months of fear, resolve, and triumph.
