Group of school children wearing masks to protect against infection

Join us for a timely update on COVID-19 vaccines for children, as well other pressing issues impacting the course of the pandemic: What do we need to know about vaccinating younger children given the recent emergency use authorization for kids 5 to 11 years old? Who exactly needs a booster dose? What’s the latest on variants? And how should we address the global gap of vaccine access among countries? A panel of experts will discuss new developments and persistent challenges during this free, live-streamed Forum event on November 12.

Kizzmekia Corbett, Assistant Professor of Immunology and Infectious Diseases, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health
