As an extension of our past series on vaccines, Seton Hall University School of Law Professor Carl Coleman discusses the ethical issues of COVID-19 vaccines challenge trails with Dr. Bryan C. Pilkington of the School of Health and Medical Sciences at Seton Hall University.

The latest episode of the COVID-19 Ethics Series Podcast explores why challenge studies are done, the ethical issues of deliberately infecting clinical trial participants with a virus that could be deadly, and whether participants should be paid. Their conversation also covers the safeguards needed to manage challenge study risks and whether there is a need for this type of covid vaccine research right now.
