How to Make COVID-19 Vaccination a Success? Policy Priorities and Implementation from Israel and Around the World
With several vaccines against the COVID-19 virus finally available around the world, the next big challenge is how to swiftly and safely distribute them with the right priority both nationally and globally. Israel presently leads the world having vaccinated over 25 percent of its population, and other countries - primarily the United Kingdom - have embarked on a concentrated mass effort. However, even countries with a successful vaccination programme jump-start are now racing against time with the rapid spread of new variants of the virus that have necessitated the most stringent lockdowns to date.

This panel of renowned experts will discuss policy options and strategies for expedited mass vaccination, the extent the current lockdowns support these strategies while impacting the economy, and what constitutes real success - and ultimately victory - over the virus around the globe.

Speakers:
- Professor Ran Balicer, Chief Innovation Officer at Clalit Health Service, Head of the Cabinet’s Coronavirus Experts, Israel
- Dr Olivier Wouters, Department of Health, LSE
- Professor Prashant Yadav, Senior Fellow, Center for Global Development; Affiliate Professor, INSEAD, and Lecturer-Harvard Medical School.

Chair: Piroska Nagy-Mohacsi, Interim Director, Institute of Global Affairs, LSE.
