Webinar Presentation Overview
Vaccines have long been part of a coordinated public health response to pandemic diseases. A valuable addition to the standard public health tools of surveillance, communication and quarantine, vaccines can save lives.  Not all  diseases have a corresponding vaccine available, and deploying vaccines in the context of a pandemic can be challenging.

Using COVID-19 as an example, this presentation will focus on virology; epidemiological and containment strategies; and best practices related to vaccines and vaccine deployment.

This webinar is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Please share with your network.
