COVID-19 vaccines: What we know today and what we will need to know tomorrow
Date: March 4, 2021
Time: 12:00 – 1:30 PM ET (90 mins)
The largest public health vaccination campaign Canada has ever known is now underway. What is pharmacy’s role now, and how will it evolve in later phases of the rollout? Join us on March 4, 2021, from 12:00-1:30pm ET for an overview of what pharmacists need to know about COVID-19 vaccines in Canada. Our expert panellists will provide a review of the technologies and evidence on vaccines approved so far and will discuss key patient education strategies to help pharmacists reduce vaccine hesitancy among Canadians. This session will also include a moderated Q&A session with our panellists. Please let us know if you have any key questions you’d like our panellists to address on COVID vaccines and how pharmacy will support vaccination efforts in Canada.
