Just over one year on from the detection of the novel coronavirus, one of the largest educational gaps experienced by healthcare professionals involved in the fight against the spread of COVID-19 is an expert review and dissemination of the incoming data and guidelines surrounding vaccines.

The attempt to find an effective coronavirus vaccine has led to an unprecedented amount of information becoming available in the public domain, from peer-reviewed scientific studies published in leading medical journals, to online pre-prints, press reviews, and discussions on social media. With approved vaccines now in circulation, it is crucial to have a focus on the facts, what is known and what is yet to be done. There is a need for a program that would not only expertly review emerging data but also discuss how to define an effective vaccine and how to get maximal public health benefit out of the vaccinations.

With this urgent need to effectively share the latest data and recommendations on a global scale, Virology Education will host a new virtual program on COVID-19 vaccines with topics including what is known so far about vaccine-provided protection, how a vaccine could be developed so quickly, what reinfections teach us, and how we should monitor emerging variants in the context of mass vaccination, among other burning questions. The workshop aims to provide a global platform to disseminate the latest scientific advances in the vaccine field. It will stimulate discussion and reinforce the interplay of science, community, and policy in delivering an effective vaccine to control the COVID-19 pandemic.

This program is designed for:

  • Virologists, immunologists, and scientists involved or interested in vaccine research and physicians caring for COVID-19 patients
  • Nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of COVID-19 patients, policymakers, and (non)government representatives
  • Healthcare administrators
