Good morning Professor Racinello,
Good update from Daniel on the YouTube, but download links are going to TWiV 886 at the moment. Lookiy forward to 889 going up on the download so I can put it on my phone to enjoy again.
Dr Griffin. I am a 70 yo retired Family Physician who has fully enjoyed and learned much from both your weekly briefing and all the TWIV podcasts What is happening to Novavax in the USA. It has been approved in 39 other countries, why has it taken so long for this approval process. This protein subunit vaccine would likely be more acceptable to those hesitant to have the perceived “experimental “ RNA vaccines with very similar efficacy and severe disease prevention. I am hoping it will be approved by fall so that I may have this as a choice for my 2nd booster. Thanks so much for all the hard work you all have done and the efforts to improve and distribute public health education, Dudley Gordon. MD
