ESMO Public Policy Webinar on COVID-19 Vaccinations & Patients with Cancer.

7 stycznia 2021

Dear Colleague,

We hope this message finds you well. The European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) would like to cordially invite you to our first ESMO Public Policy Webinar on COVID-19 Vaccinations and Patients with Cancer, to take place on:

Date: Friday 8th January

Time: 15:30 – 17:00

ESMO will be convening a virtual meeting to discuss the impact and importance of COVID-19 vaccinations in patients with a high-risk profile, for example patients with cancer. Given the current discussions about vaccines and vaccination strategies, and as we represent over 25,000 oncology professionals, we feel that it is our responsibility to discuss this important topic, for the benefit of the oncology and health communities, and most importantly for the patients.

As Member States are currently finalizing their vaccination strategies, and as the European Medicines Agency will be having its 2nd public stakeholder meeting on the approval and roll-out of COVID-19 vaccines in the EU on the 8th itself, we believe it is crucial and timely for us to discuss this topic.

The agenda is currently being fine-tuned, however we will have speakers from the World Health Organization, the European Medicines Agency, the European Commission, patients, among others and it will be circulated ahead of the meeting.


Please feel free to forward this message to those who may be interested in joining us.

Thank you for your time and we hope you would be able to join us for this important meeting.

Best wishes,

Malvika Vyas

ESMO Head of Public Policy
