Vaccine Distribution: Path to Pandemic Protection - Noon
The nation’s first cases of the pandemic coronavirus were first reported in January 2020. Cases quickly spread to Michigan. Now, new vaccines shipments are on their way across the country, and Michigan is seeing its first doses. Vaccines are known to help prevent the spread of disease and death, and IPPSR’s first Public Policy Forum of 2020 will focus on Vaccine Distribution: Path to Pandemic Protection. Michigan State University’s Institute for Public Policy and Social Research is inviting health authorities and infectious disease specialists to update state and local efforts to roll out vaccines to the state’s 10 million people. They’ll discuss guidelines, best practices and the current status of vaccine availability.
Zoom details will be sent to those who register before day’s end on Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2020.
