COVID-19, immunoprivilege and structural inequalities
History and Philosophy of the Life Sciences
As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, some countries, including the US, Chile, and Germany, have considered issuing “immunity passports.” This possibility has raised concerns and debate regarding their potential social, political and economic ramifications, especially for marginalized communities.
