Webinar – Developing a COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives. Medical experts around the globe have said that what we each have known as normal life won’t fully resume until we have a vaccine, and that could take years. In this webinar, an expert panel will take you inside the race to develop a COVID-19 vaccine. What’s involved in developing a vaccine? Why does it take so long? What pathways are being explored? What clinical trials are under way and when will they be completed? Once we have a vaccine, what’s involved in adding it to Canada’s national immunization program?
