COVID-19 Update Live Webinar, Dec. 11th

December 11, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is unprecedented in modern times. New information is becoming available on a daily basis. The United States is approximately 9 months into the pandemic, and scientific understanding of the disease and treatment is changing frequently. This presentation will provide an update on the information learned about the disease up to this point in the pandemic, with a particular focus on available and upcoming treatment options and vaccines. It is very important for pharmacists, nurses, and pharmacy technicians to be up-to-date on this information, particularly since vaccine distribution will likely occur early 2021; of note, pharmacy technicians have now been approved to administer the vaccine, making it highly important for them to be knowledgeable as well.
