This timely webinar will give an overview of what we know about the COVID-19 disease state, including pathophysiology and signs and symptoms. We'll profile high risk patient groups and how to address risk mitigation within these groups. And finally, we look at COVID-19 vaccines: what vaccines are currently available and what's coming; vaccine development and currently approved treatments; efficacy, dosing, and storage options for each vaccine; and a review of data from recent studies.
