The COVID-19 pandemic is a tragic reminder of how unprepared the world is in detecting and responding to emerging infectious diseases. What is clear now is that vaccinations will play an important role in controlling this global health crisis. As vaccines' role in saving the world's population expands, we need to understand issues such as safety and efficacy, vaccine hesitancy, social (mis) trust, herd immunity, and preparing ourselves both mentally and physically.
In particular, we must consider the role of corporations in understanding these issues. Employees are the most important stakeholders of a company. Employers' impact on helping employees navigate through the vaccination process will be crucial in the upcoming months.
To discuss vaccine concerns and challenges prevalent in society and in the workplace today, WiFA welcomes Dr. Myra, Medical Director, AIA Group and Dr. Donald Greig, Managing Partner HKSS.
