COVID-19 Panel Discussion: A Vaccine Recovery

January 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Discussing COVID-19 vaccine contenders, distribution, and the immunization process. Aiming to provide good information and dispel myths.

This panel discussion will look to focus on COVID-19 vaccination including vaccine contenders, distribution and the immunization process. There are several misconceptions surrounding the efficacy and safety of the COVID-19 vaccine that many physicians, scientists, activists, and others are worried are not being addressed. The discussion will also focus on vaccination from a pharmaceutical, immunology and health equity perspective. The discussion will include explanation on vaccine development for COVID-19 and we wish to address the shorter time span required for COVID-19 vaccine development. Vaccination priority within the Canadian community is going to be touched on as well. With our diverse panel perspectives, we want to dispel myths surrounding the vaccination process and provide the public with accurate and useful information that will help inform them on Canada’s COVID-19 vaccination process.
