MSA Town Hall: Second Dose Deferral to Extend COVID-19 Vaccine Coverage: Review of the Evidence, 5-6PM
- This event has passed.
A comprehensive and important presentation about the COVID-19 vaccine: with Drs. Tracy Scott,Victor Leung, & Janet Kow, and special guest Dr.Danuta Skowronski, Epidemiology Lead, Influenza & Emerging Respiratory Pathogens from the BC Centre for Disease Control.
As vaccine supply will be limited through the beginning of 2021, it will require strategic management to address scarcity during a period of heightened need. To extend protective vaccine coverage, population risk assessment and response require consideration of second dose deferral. This talk will review the evidence and benefit-risk analysis underpinning decisions to defer the second dose of COVID-19 vaccine.
Dr. Skowronski is much sought after for her expertise and her ability to get us the information we need as clinicians.
