As COVID-19 spreads, there is continued focus on developing a vaccine. With promises that a vaccine could be available before the end of the year, many of us are left with questions: How can I sign up to participate in a vaccine trial? When will a vaccine be ready? Will I be able to get it? Will the vaccine be safe? Will it have any side effects?
Answers to these and other questions will be addressed in this webinar.
