[Webinar] Preparing the Frontline for the COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout: Learning from the Past

On January 22, 2021, I joined a panel of experts in sharing regional experiences about vaccination as part of the webinar series organized by the BMJ, Asian Development Bank and UNICEF to "explore key challenges from past vaccine campaigns and facilitate a discussion to support countries with their Covid-19 vaccine rollout.

I shared a presentation entitled "Vaccine risk communication: Lessons from the Philippines" which center on insights from the dengue vaccine controversy, drawing on WHO guidelines for vaccine safety communication as framework.  

Joining me in the panel were Dr Patrick L. Osewe: Chief of Health Sector Group, Asian Development Bank; Ms Lulu Ariyantheny Dewi, Epidemiologist, Immunization Sub‐Directorate, Ministry of Health Indonesia; and Ms Wendy Erasmus, Chief Health, UNICEF Pacific Islands. The webinar was moderated by Dr. Ashley McKimm, Director of Partnership Development, BMJ.
