On March 11, 2021 Flanders Vaccine is organizing its 3rd webinar on COVID-19.
Europe is still experiencing significant challenges due to the corona pandemic. Yet, there is hope; thanks to the prioritized and safe development of several COVID-19 vaccines, the vaccination campaigns could be rolled out in many countries.
To help you gain a better understanding of the different types of COVID-19 vaccines available, I would like to invite you to attend the Flanders Vaccine’s webinar and discuss:
- How do these different types of vaccines work? What is their mechanism of action?
- What do the phase 3 study results tell us about the safety, tolerability, immunogenicity and efficacy of the vaccines?
- Are these different types of vaccines protective against current and upcoming COVID-19 variants?
- What measures are being taken to ensure the safe and effective use of COVID-19 vaccines?
The latest scientific research data will be shared by renowned expert and key questions will be addressed during the panel debate, moderated by Prof. Dr. Pierre Van Damme, UAntwerp and Prof. Dr. Isabel Leroux-Roels, UGhent & University Hospital of Ghent.
