Vaccinating Against COVID-19: Medical, Policy, and Legal Dimensions

The worldwide race to immunize citizens against COVID-19 has begun, which is a critical step toward ending the pandemic and saving lives. Despite this milestone, the speed at which vaccines have been developed, their unequal distribution (whether among or within states), and their potential impact on individual access to travel or certain facilities, such as sports and concerts, have raised challenging legal, medical, and policy concerns. This webinar will examine the following issues from an interdisciplinary perspective:

  • Should immunization be mandated for all?
  • If required for certain workers, can a person opt out?
  • What legal challenges could arise as to the distribution system?
  • What measures should be in place to ensure the security of medicine?

None of these questions can be answered from only one perspective, as informed answers require input from medical, legal, and policy experts.
