CDC: National Forum on COVID-19 Vaccine

February 22 - 24

 

10 am - 3:30 pm

The National Forum on COVID-19 Vaccine is a virtual event that will unite representatives from across the US government, with tribal, state, local, and territorial leaders and representatives from public health, healthcare systems, national and community-based non-governmental organizations, education, private industry, unions, and faith-based organizations. All have a role in supporting COVID-19 vaccination.

Offering three days of information geared toward practitioners responsible for ensuring vaccination strategies are implemented, the Forum will feature national, state, tribal, community, and private sector experts. Each day will include the following session types:

  • Promising Practice Plenaries: Sessions open to the broader public that will share critical scientific information, engaging US government leaders, and showcasing promising real-world practices from different communities. Each day will begin with an opening plenary to highlight promising practices across three key topic areas: building trust and vaccine confidence, data to drive vaccine implementation, and optimizing and maximizing equitable vaccine access.

  • Practitioner Town Halls: Concurrent sessions intended to provide practitioners the opportunity to engage with subject matter experts and exchange information on how to apply lessons learned in vaccine implementation. Town Halls will be limited in size.

  • Roundtable Discussions – Within each Town Hall will be small group Roundtable Discussions focused on select topics; these discussions will allow for networking and sharing among practitioners. Roundtable Discussions will be limited in size and are subject to change depending on participant interest.
