In the twenty-second episode of Pri-Med’s web series on COVID-19, faculty will examine the concept of “herd immunity” and how it relates to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. They will not only explain the basics of herd immunity but take a deep dive into why herd immunity may or may not help to limit the spread of COVID-19. This session will also re-visit the COVID-19 vaccine pipeline, explaining where we stand with current vaccine trials and the outlook for vaccine development.

Learning Objectives:
• Outline the basics of herd immunity, how herd immunity thresholds are estimated, and factors that influence the duration of protection
• Describe the limitations of relying upon infection-induced herd immunity with COVID-19
• Distinguish pathways to creation of an effective vaccine against COVID-19
• Evaluate updates in the development of a vaccine against COVID-19 

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
