Vaccines against COVID-19 are probably one of the most valuable categories of vaccines ever developed. However, vaccine supply and financial constraints have forced national, regional and global decision makers into hard decisions about the best way to use these vaccines. This talk describes some of the work to assess their health impact and economic value, focusing on the economics of health care. There will be some overlap with a presentation Mark recently gave at the Kirby.
