IAPO joins the #TeamVaccines campaign
IAPO is proud to be part of the #TeamVaccines, a global digital campaign designed to build confidence in COVID-19 vaccines launched by the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers & associations (IFPMA). We support this campaign because we believe vaccination is not just an individual commitment but a commitment to each other. It means protecting others by helping to reach herd immunity across society, particularly for those patients who, for medical reasons, can not take the vaccine themselves.
The campaign tells the human stories of real people involved in the making of COVID-19 vaccines; people from around the world who work within the biopharmaceutical industry and who have been affected by the global pandemic in many of the same ways everyone has – balancing work and home schooling, supporting family members and friends, dealing with illness and loss – all the while working to help advance science and urgently bring new COVID-19 vaccines to the world.
The biopharmaceutical industry, academia, governments and regulators have come together to rise to the challenge of our age. We have accelerated R&D and delivered vaccines in record time, and are making vaccines in huge numbers that have not been seen before. But we are doing it in the way we always do – to the highest of scientific and regulatory standards. The #TeamVaccines campaign shows how the biopharmaceutical industry embraces rigorous independent scientific evaluation and robust independent approval processes. Not just scientifically, but also in the way the COVID-19 vaccines are being produced, distributed and monitored.
#TeamVaccines is all of us united by a shared goal: end the suffering, protect the ones we love, and help the world get back to normal. We invite to view the content and share widely among your networks.
