COVID-19 has no doubt changed the course of our world, killing nearly 2.5 million people and affecting millions more. The race to create a vaccine was intense and required cooperation from many different parts of the medical and pharmaceutical community. Discovery+'s new documentary, "The Vaccine: Conquering COVID" chronicles how we finally got a working vaccine in our fight against the virus.

Dr. Syra Madad, the Senior Director of pathogens program at NYC Health and Hospitals and Jennifer Haller, the first person in the U.S. to participate in the Moderna clinical COVID-19 vaccine trial, join our RTM hosts via Zoom to give us a little more insight into this unprecedented vaccine effort. "The Vaccine: Conquering COVID" is streaming now on Discovery+.
