COVID-19 Vaccine Symposium
Mission Possible: the vital role nurses play in the race to vaccinate
Wednesday, February 24, 2021
1 pm – 3 pm EST / 10 am – 12 pm PST
The country is looking to nursing and counting on us. Achieving the goal of widespread vaccination has demanded coordinated deployment of our nursing knowledge and skills.
Join the University of Washington School of Nursing and Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing for a virtual symposium at which leading experts will share their in-depth knowledge of the logistical, medical, and other details of the COVID-19 vaccination program.
- -How will nursing lead the administration protocols for each available vaccine?
- -Where will vaccination clinics most effectively be held?
- -What can nurses best do to reach underserved populations?
- -How will we encourage and track follow up vaccinations?
- -How do nurses lead the charge to build trust in vaccinations?
- -What does the availability curve for vaccine look like for the next 6-9 months?
- -What additional vaccines are in the pipeline, and how are they similar to or different from those now seeking emergency approval?
These and many other questions will be addressed at the symposium. This is an opportunity for the community and nursing professionals to coordinate information and inquiries, advocate for vaccination, and influence how we implement the vaccination program. There will be a question-and-answer period.
