#76: Vaccines, Animal Testing, & Ethics

In Episode 76 of the Paw & Order podcast, co-hosts Camille Labchuk and Jessica Scott-Reid deep dive into the ethics of getting vaccines that have been tested on animals—which is an especially hot (and rightfully sensitive) topic as we grapple with the global pandemic. They discuss why animal testing is outdated and less effective than modern alternative methods, why research animals are often unprotected by cruelty laws and deserve protection, what types of animal tests leading research companies have been doing to develop COVID-19 vaccines, what animal-derived ingredients go into these vaccines, what’s really going on with a ‘plant-based’ vaccine being developed in Canada, and why animal advocates should still consider getting vaccinated although animal testing is a requirement, so they can stay in good health, help end the global pandemic, and keep on fighting to make change for animals.
