John Whyte, MD, MPH, Capt. Joshua Bochkor & Albert Shen
Digital Transformation in a New Age, is a future-focused webinar series for Public Sector brought to you by Verizon. Join us for the third installment in the series: "Enabling Vaccine Deployment." COVID-19 vaccinations continue, representing the most urgent mass immunization campaign since polio shots were rolled out in the 1950s.
Where do things stand as the vaccine continues to make its way to the initial round of eligible recipients? How are state and local governments, as well as public health leaders, managing the onslaught of calls and questions from constituents, employees and healthcare organizations? Beyond that, how are governments and agencies helping communicate, ease anxiety, ensure security protocols are met and provide timely updates to citizens as the vaccine rollout continues?
