January 14, 2021
: 6:00 PM - 6:30 PM Bahrain time

Join the discussion and participate in the Q&A session with Dr. Peter J. Hotez.

Since the beginning of the global pandemic, U.S. government agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), through Operation Warp Speed, have been working in public/private partnerships to make one or more COVID-19 vaccines available as soon as safely and logistically possible. The historic development of multiple vaccines with extremely high efficacy and rapid U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for emergency use has been nothing short of miraculous.

On Thursday, January 14, 2021, the Bilateral Chamber of Commerce will be joined by Dr. Peter J. Hotez for an in-depth discussion regarding the historic COVID-19 vaccine development, efficacy and impact. Dr. Hotez is an internationally recognized physician-scientist in neglected tropical diseases and vaccine development, and frequently appears on television (including BBC, CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC), radio, and newspaper interviews (including the New York Times, USA Today, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal).

Topics of discussion will include Dr. Hotez’s insight on:

  • Overview of the COVID-19 Disease and Emerging Variant Strains
  • COVID-19 Vaccines: Development, Efficacy, and Differences 
  • COVID-19 Immunization Rollout: Successes and Roadblocks
  • Global Immunization: Different Vaccines and Protocols, Developing Global Herd Immunity 
  • Looking Forward to the New Normal in an Immunized Global Economy
