Session 4: Risk Management And Communication For Vaccines. Biotherapeutics Impact Of Covid-19 Pandemic
Francoise Sillan, MD
EU1 UK QPPV
Effective communication about safety of vaccines and vaccination is critical: perceptions of harm may persist despite evidence that a serious adverse event is not related to the vaccination and communicating about vaccine safety to multiple audiences (e.g. healthcare providers, patients and parents) is complex.
The ongoing threat to global health from COVID-19 poses critical challenges with an abundance of information and misinformation on the disease and on vaccination. The stakeholder’s perceptions regarding vaccine safety has an impact on coverage rates. This session will explore these different challenges from regulator, industry and academic perspectives.
