COVID-19 Vaccines: One Year Later

Virtual Conversation with Nicole Lurie, MD, MSPH, Florence Momplaisir, MD, MSHP, FACP, Paul Offit, MD, and Ala Stanford, MD, moderated by Alison Buttenheim, PhD, MBA

12:00p.m. – 1:00p.m. ET December 10, 2021 Virtual Event

Nearly a year after the federal emergency authorization of the first COVID-19 vaccine, we have made some progress toward ending the pandemic. However, many challenges remain—in vaccine distribution, vaccine uptake, and the emergence of new variants, including the omicron variant—that threaten the progress we’ve made. Penn LDI reconvened a panel of experts to talk about what we’ve learned about COVID-19 vaccines, what we’re still learning, and what we can potentially expect for the future.

Supported by the Charles C. Leighton, MD Memorial Lecture Fund.
