Dear colleagues,


The recording of the webinar on Infection prevention and control for COVID-19 vaccine introduction is available in three languages here: (English) (Spanish) (French)


The questions that could not be answered during the session have also been compiled into the following Q&A document:

These are the questions that have been answered:

  • Should we change the needle before we administer the vaccine to recipient? Because according to Pfizer, we can use the same needle (syringe out the vaccine and administer the vaccine to recipient). Is there any risk of infection if we don’t change the needle?
  • The use of the auto disable syringe and needle does not allow for change of the needle after going through the stopper of the vial. Can you comment on this please?
  • Like COVAX support, can we expect donor support to improve IPC measures & facilities such as incinerators in developing countries? As the existing system might not be enough and governments are already overburdened with vaccine cost and other logistics.


You can now find all the resources for all the COVID-19 Vaccine Introduction webinar sessions here:
