The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by SARS-CoV-2, is of a scale not seen since the 1918 influenza pandemic. Although the predominant clinical
presentation is with respiratory disease, neurological manifestations are frequent. In this episode, we will discuss thrombotic events following COVID-19 vaccination. We will also have a brief literature digest from @Neuropsychcovid.
The webinar is followed by the WHO COVID-Neuro Clinical Exchange.
