About this Event

Let's talk vaccines: Spring 2021 webinar series

A live online discussion series with Doctors Without Borders staff from around the world.

At a time of intense global focus on COVID-19 vaccines, join Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) this spring for a three-part webinar series exploring our work on immunization. We’ll discuss how our medical teams respond to epidemics, provide routine vaccinations amid crisis and conflict, and speak out for equitable access to vaccines. We’ll also look ahead to future opportunities for the development of vaccines that better meet the needs of our patients. MSF experts will draw on their experience to answer your questions about this urgent topic.

MSF has nearly 50 years of experience delivering lifesaving vaccines in extreme conditions. Whether we’re vaccinating against common diseases like measles or pneumonia, or fighting newer threats like Ebola and COVID-19, we know that vaccines work. These are some of the most effective public health interventions available.

Join the first event in this series:

Thursday, February 25, 2021 - 1:00 PM EST (10:00 AM PST)

  • Let's talk: Vaccines in an emergency - Vaccination is one of the most effective ways to prevent deadly diseases. And yet getting vaccines to where they're needed can be difficult, even more so during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many mass vaccination efforts have been disrupted by lockdown measures and the need to maintain social distancing. Our teams have had to adapt to vaccine shortages, logistical difficulties, and challenging vaccination schedules. This week, we'll be in conversation with Kate Elder, senior vaccines policy adviser for MSF’s Access Campaign, John Johnson, MSF's vaccination and epidemic response referent, Dorothy Esonwune, project coordinator for MSF in South Sudan, and Mirjam Molenaar, the medical team leader for MSF on Samos island in Greece. Together this expert panel will answer your questions about MSF's experience delivering vaccinations in some of the world’s toughest conditions—from supporting emergency vaccination campaigns in response to an epidemic, to ensuring routine vaccinations in countries affected by war and civil unrest.
