Bass, Berry & Sims attorney Clint Hermes will co-present at the American Health Law Association’s (AHLA) Virtual Academic Medical Centers and Teaching Hospitals Institute on January 26, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM EST. His session, “Vaccines and the Role of American Medical Centers,” will include an “in the trenches” perspective from a major health system on the vaccine rollout. Assuming that a vaccine has been authorized and vaccination has begun, how have the early days of allocation and vaccination gone?
Along with Dr. Carrie Byington, head of University of California Health and Holly Fernandez Lynch, Assistant Faculty Director of Online Education, Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, their panel will also discuss logistical challenges with the administration and tracking of mass vaccination, especially with one or more two-dose vaccines, ongoing vaccine clinical trials and the difficulties with enrolling subjects when a vaccine is available and key legal and ethical issues for academic medical centers related to clinical trials, vaccination of children, and allocation questions.
AHLA’s Virtual Academic Medical Centers and Teaching Hospitals Institute will take place from January 25-26, 2021. For more information and to register, please visit the AHLA website.
