SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine Technologies and Pivotal Trials Data: General Population and Special Groups

Chair: Anne-Marie Dingemans
Speakers: Nicola Giesen, Marco Cavaleri, Paul Heath

Learning objectives: 

  • To provide essential principles on vaccinations in patients with cancer
  • To understand the basics in different technologies used for development of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines
  • To understand which SARS-CoV-2 vaccine technology may serve better different population groups
  • To understand potential differences in terms of SARS-CoV-2 vaccine technologies that might be important in terms of immune response and safety in patients with co-morbidity and immune dysfunction, by giving a special emphasis on cancer
  • To evaluate SARS-CoV-2 vaccine trials data in terms of efficacy in the general population and in the patient groups with co-morbidity, immune dysfunction and cancer
  • To evaluate SARS-CoV-2 vaccine trials data in terms of safety in the general population and in the patient groups with co-morbidity, immune dysfunction and cancer

The programme was designed to offer expert opinion exchange and provide some considerations on key economic, ethical and societal aspects of prioritising the SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, as well as the balance between personal and societal freedoms, and special issues in vulnerable patient groups.
