Thursday June 23, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EDT
Our 8th Research Results & Implications seminar will bring together CITF-affiliated experts to discuss how the Omicron variant changed the course of the pandemic by rapidly infecting hundreds of millions of healthy people around the globe, spurring the distribution of additional vaccine doses to boost immunity. What do we know and what’s next?
Our presenters will report on:
- The extent and nature of Omicron infection in Canada and around the globe;
- How Omicron evaded existing immunity to spread so widely;
- The notion of hybrid immunity, and how infection-acquired and vaccine-induced immunity can function together; and
- Those at greatest risk of COVID-19 and why.
