Power, Privilege, and the COVID-19 Vaccine
“Medical ethics begins with the assumption that all people are equal, that every life has value,” Charles E. Binkley, a surgeon and director of bioethics at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University, said in an interview. But in real life, there’s plenty of wiggle room. Anybody can get COVID-19, but not everyone gets access to the same treatment. Some people, because of what they do “to keep society moving,” get priority, said Binkley.
