Over six months into this global health crisis, we are seeing how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect the world we live in. How much longer will this go on? And when we do have a COVID-19 vaccine approved and available for public distribution, will a lack of vaccine confidence impact the amount of Americans who will prioritize getting the vaccine? This panel will feature experts from the industry as they discuss the COVID-19 vaccine strategy and development, and what we can expect in regards to when, where and who will be receiving this long-awaited COVID-19 treatment.
Key takeaways from the session will include:
- Why there is societal resistance and mistrust in the COVID-19 vaccine development process, causing vaccine hesitancy
- The danger of vaccine skepticism amongst the healthcare community, and how to change public opinion
- What the COVID-19 landscape looks like now, and what it will look like in the next 3-6 months
- The importance of vaccine access, awareness and education to all communities, including people of color
