Hosted by AMA physician leaders, each installment of this webinar series aims to gain fact-based insights from the nation’s highest-ranking subject matter experts working to protect the health of the public, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Experts discuss the latest developments on the road to effective COVID-19 vaccines, including a deep dive into the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) process, specifically how the timeline has been shortened from a matter of years to a matter of months.
In the first episode, AMA leaders and experts from the FDA provided a comprehensive overview of the COVID-19 vaccine and an inside look at the FDA development and approval process of a vaccine.
The second episode focused on the CDC’s role in vaccine review and immunization programs. The purpose of this discussion was to help physicians and the public have a better understanding of the vaccine development process, as well as allocation and distribution of a vaccine, or vaccines, when they become available.
