This webinar is an opportunity to share experiences and learnings from past vaccination campaigns during epidemics, as well as early lessons from the COVID-19 rollout in low and middle-income countries. We will discuss the barriers and enablers currently being experienced by vaccination teams as they roll out COVID-19 vaccines, and the development of local solutions.
This is the third event of a UK Public Health Rapid Support Team (UK-PHRST) discussion series on outbreak preparedness and response which aims to encourage reflection and shared learning, as well as creative discourse.
• To provide an opportunity for the sharing of experiences of COVID-19 vaccination in low and middle-income countries.
• To encourage the sharing of barriers, enablers, lessons and local solutions from past and current epidemic/pandemic vaccination campaigns that can support the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in low and middle-income countries.
