UNITED IN THE SEARCH OF A COVID-19 VACCINE

UNITED IN THE SEARCH OF A COVID-19 VACCINE

In these unprecedented times, the biohealth industry is coming together to achieve one shared goal: to beat COVID-19. And it is happening in our back yard.

 

As Maryland & Montgomery County gradually lift the confinement measures, it is clear that vaccine represents our best hope of moving out from under the shadow of the coronavirus epidemic.

 

The Gaithersburg-Germantown, Clarksburg, & Poolesville Chambers of Commerce will host representatives from AstraZeneca to discuss how the pharmaceutical industry is working around the clock, at extraordinary speed to develop a safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19. Doug Ryder, president, Holy Cross Germantown Hospital will moderate the discussion.

 

During the presentation, panelists from AstraZeneca will provide an overview of:

  • What is a vaccine & how does it work?
  • Status of a COVID-19 vaccine
  • How would the vaccine be distributed?
  • What is the current timeline for development, testing, and distribution?

 

Join us for this relevant & timely topic.
