MOMENTUM Webinar: Maintaining Focus on Routine Immunization through COVID-19 Vaccination

April 27, 2021

Please join MOMENTUM on April 27, 2021 from 8:30-10am EDT for a webinar on Maintaining Focus on Routine Immunization through COVID-19 Vaccination.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, vaccinating priority populations against the virus is a top priority for health systems worldwide. This global focus on vaccines provides an opportunity to elevate the importance of routine immunization and consider new ways to reach under-vaccinated populations with life-saving vaccines. In addition to opportunities mentioned, there may be risks, including diverting health system attention away from routine immunization and possible spillover effects from concerns about COVID-19 vaccine safety. This webinar will explore early experiences and strategies to leverage the focus on COVID-19 to strengthen routine immunization. Hear from the USAID Immunization Team, USAID Mozambique, Gavi, and the MOMENTUM Routine Immunization Transformation and Equity project. Register here to join!
