The Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator’s Country Readiness and Delivery (CRD) workstream, Project ECHO, Boost, TechNet-21, and the COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Project are organising a series of video-conference-based capacity building webinars. This series facilitates the sharing of guidance, tools, and other resources to support effective introduction and administration of COVID-19 vaccines on a global scale. Sessions have been designed for two key audiences: national, regional, and global stakeholders preparing for COVID-19 vaccine introduction; and health workers delivering safe administration of COVID-19 vaccine.
