  • Webinar

Tuesday 29 September 2020 – 12:00-13:15 (ET)
Across the globe, there have been extensive challenges in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. As public health officials and health care providers work to contain the spread of the virus, Canadians are asking some key questions:

  1. Where do we stand on the development of COVID-19 vaccines?
  2. Once successful vaccine candidates are identified, how will they be rolled out in Canada?
  3. How would an internationally developed vaccine get to Canada?
  4. What is Canada’s role in making a vaccine available to populations at risk around the world?

Our panelists will provide an overview of the current epidemiology of COVID-19 and discuss these questions. Participants will be invited to pose their own questions to the panelists:

  • Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer of British Columbia
  • Gary Kobinger, Director, Infectious Disease Research Centre, Université Laval, Québec
  • Marianne Stanford, Vice President, Research & Development, IMV, Inc.; Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology, Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia
  • Brian Ward, Associate Professor, McGill University, Québec; Medical Officer, Medicago Inc.

This webinar will be held in English only.
