When the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) emerged in late 2019, hundreds of individuals and organizations around the world quickly mobilized to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus. Governments, not-for-profit organizations and the private sector funded efforts, and regulators are working with great speed in partnerships with scientists and innovators.
This new webpage, launched on September 21 by American Hospital Association (AHA) is intended to help keep stakeholders informed of important updates related to vaccine development, distribution, utilization protocols, supply chain and many other issues, through AHA-developed tools, as well as resources from the federal government and other stakeholders.
Among AHA’s initial resource offerings are:COVID-19 Vaccine Primer, COVID-19 Vaccine Candidate Scorecard and Special Bulletin. Additional tools and resources will be added to the webpage and shared with members during the upcoming weeks and months.
