Vaccination of the Australian population against the SARS-CoV-2 virus (COVID-19) when a vaccine becomes available, is a key national pandemic response strategy outlined in the Australian Health Management Plan for Pandemic Influenza (AHMPPI) and Australian Health Sector Emergency Response Plan for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). Since the identification of the COVID-19 virus in early 2020, vaccine manufacturers have been working on developing effective vaccines. This webinar will provide an update on the current state of vaccine development, the progress of human trials and program considerations relating to allocation, safety, and efficacy.
