Program Summary

This course will give an overview of the various ways in which the law bends towards the important public policy goal of having a population that is broadly vaccinated against contagious disease, and how the reach of that policy expands in response to an ongoing pandemic. Attendees will learn about areas ranging from pharmaceutical regulation, including conduct of clinical trials and the operation and significance of Emergency Use Authorization; regulation of vaccine administration; patent protection of vaccines; public and private vaccination mandates and their exemptions; and vaccine injury compensation. In each of these areas, attendees will learn which statutes, regulations, and practices designed to promote vaccination have been further extended to respond to the current crisis.

This course is co-sponsored with myLawCLE.

Key topics to be discussed:

  • Regulation of vaccine safety
  • Laws governing public and private vaccination mandates, and their exemptions
  • Vaccine injury compensation systems

Date / Time: January 8, 2021
