During this live webinar, Dr. Samuel Merrill, Medical Director of the West Virginia University Hemophilia Treatment Center will provide the latest information and resources about the COVID-19 Vaccine and the questions and concerns around vaccination and bleeding disorders. We will also be joined by Krista Capehart, Director of Professional and Regulatory Affairs for the West Virginia Board of Pharmacy to discuss the vaccine implementation and distribution plan nationally.
COCNHF recognizes that individuals with bleeding disorders may have questions and concerns relevant to the new COVID-19 vaccines, including any implications specific to their conditions. This webinar is meant to address some of the most common questions. Please note that these answers were created for broad purposes and that affected individuals should engage closely with their healthcare provider to discuss the possibilities of vaccination, including potential contraindications (if any), and specific questions related to safety and efficacy. Given the nature of this virus, rapid developments in vaccines, and the upcoming transition in our federal government, this continues to be a very fluid situation.
