COVID-19 Community of Practice for Ontario Family Physicians

May 7, 2021

Variants, the J&J vaccine, VIIT, and more

Please join us for the twenty-second in our series 'Changing the way we work' on Friday, May 7, 2021 at 8:00-9:00am (ET). We continue our discussion about COVID-19 with a deeper dive into the Variants of Concern, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and how to help your patients weigh the risks and benefits of the viral vector vaccines in light of Vaccine Induced Immune Thrombotic Thrombocytopenia (VIIT). As usual, we will keep ample time to answer your questions.
