This webinar provided an overview of emerging evidence on the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccinations among care home populations and showcased two studies that are measuring COVID-19 immunity among care home populations in Canada and the UK.
- What is the evidence on the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines for people living in care homes?
- What do we know about the duration of immunity?
- What are the implications of what we know so far, and what is the evidence we need in order to address the ongoing challenges posed by COVID-19 in care homes?
