Vaccine Information Session
Sabin convened its fourth Latin America Vaccine Information Session for journalists currently reporting on health topics 20-22 November, 2017, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The media plays an important role in public awareness of diseases and the benefits of immunization. This information session connects journalists with public health experts to deepen their understanding of the science of vaccines.
28 Journalists from 15 countries attended the session which included sessions on a variety of topics, including vaccinology and clinical trials, successful control of vaccine-preventable diseases, current vaccines on the market and vaccine safety. The concepts covered allow journalists to report on the many vaccine-related stories that may arise in their local communities. Previous sessions have been held in Peru, Brazil and Chile.
