The Road to Immunity During COVID-19: Developing and Distributing a Vaccine

Online

The ninth COVID-19 Conversations webinar will discuss the road to immunity during COVID-19, including the basics of vaccine development, how developing a vaccine for COVID-19 differs from "traditional" vaccine development, and what actions can be taken now and in the coming months to ensure that our supply chain is ready to manufacture millions of doses of a vaccine.

The webinar will begin with an introduction from the session's moderator, Paul A. Offit, Director, Vaccine Education Center, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and then feature presentations from a panel of experts, including:

  •     John R. Mascola - Director, Dale and Betty Bumpers Vaccine Research Center, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
  •     Kathleen M. Neuzil - Myron M. Levine, MD Professor in Vaccinology and Director, Center for Vaccine Development and Global Health, University of Maryland School of Medicine
  •     Richard J. Hatchett - Chief Executive Officer, Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI)
  •     Seth Berkley - Chief Executive Officer, Gavi, The Vaccine Alliance

The panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session with the webinar audience.

This webinar has also been approved for 1.5 continuing education credits for CPH, CME, CNE or CHES. Several days after attending the webinar, participants will receive an email on how to claim their credits.
