2020 National Adult and Influenza Immunization Summit Virtual Meeting

Developing COVID-19 Vaccines in Record Time: Platforms and Partnerships for Prevention

May 12, 2020

Global health leaders have all said that the long-term solution to ending the pandemic is the arrival of a vaccine or vaccines that can be rapidly deployed around the world. Yet the development of a vaccine is a complex undertaking, especially during a global pandemic of an unknown pathogen with uncertain epidemiology. Even so, many vaccine developers moved swiftly, using platform technologies to go from genetic sequence data to vaccine candidates in a few short weeks, shortening typical timelines by months and years.

During this virtual meeting, the panel members shown below discussed the path to clinical trials and shared their thoughts on how collaboration will bring life-saving vaccines to the world in this time of unprecedented need.
