Updates on Vaccination Against COVID-19
Special Topic

Vaccines don’t save lives. Vaccination does.
There have been rapid developments in the race for a vaccine for COVID-19 and breakthroughs occur as we speak. Currently there are more than 100 COVID-19 vaccines in development, with 3-4 vaccines ahead and positioned for limited use in certain countries that have manufacturing capacity.
What is the latest news on the vaccines for COVID-19? Will the Philippines have access to the leading vaccines that are going to be used in the US and UK? What is the mechanism for making sure that all countries will have access to the vaccine?
Will the leading vaccines end the pandemic? Is the Philippines prepared to deploy a vaccine against COVID? What are the logistical requirements for vaccination against COVID-19 and what is the game plan?
Join us as we listen to experts who will discuss vaccine development, clinical trials and the Philippine roadmap for vaccination against COVID-19.
