United in the search of a COVID-19 vaccine Virtual event

On 9 June Vaccines Europe and EFPIA, the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations, hosted “United in the search of a COVID-19 vaccine”, the first of a series of virtual events dedicated on COVID-19 vaccines and pandemic preparedness.

This virtual event provided an opportunity to hear about and ask questions on the search for vaccines against COVID-19. How soon will a vaccine be ready? How are we going to make it available for 7 billion people? 

All actors, including the EU institutions, are working together in an unprecedented way to speed up the research and development processes and scale-up manufacturing capacities to tackle this major public health threat.

Following a short introduction from our three guest speakers on these key issues, Martin Seychell (European Commission), Pierre Van Damme (University of Antwerp), Jean Lang (Vaccines Europe), answered the participants' questions.
