Challenges of Global COVID-19 Vaccination
In 2020, every corner of the world was suddenly upended due to COVID-19 - a virus that had no regard for borders or wealth. The scientific community has made great progress, working at an unprecedented speed to create multiple effective vaccines. While promising, there are still enormous challenges ahead towards achieving global immunity. Critical bottlenecks such as vaccine hesitancy, supply chain, distribution, and equity must be addressed to accelerate the pace of vaccinations. International experts will discuss these issues and lessons learned from other countries.
