About the Webinar

This COCA Call will give clinicians an overview of the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines. Clinicians will learn about vaccine characteristics and administration, vaccinating special populations, and contraindications. They will also get answers to a number of clinical questions CDC has received about these new vaccines.

At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:

  • Cite background information on the topic covered during the presentation.
  • Discuss CDC’s role in the topic covered during the presentation.
  • Describe the topic’s implications for clinicians.
  • Discuss concerns and/or issues related to preparedness for and/or response to urgent public health threats.
  • Promote health improvement, wellness, and disease prevention in cooperation with patients, communities, at-risk populations, and other members of an interprofessional team of healthcare providers.
