  • What goes into vaccine research and what vaccines are currently under development
  • The dynamics and challenges of vaccine supply and demand
  • Current strategies for possible shortages in critical vaccines
  • Challenges of writing accurate stories against tight deadlines and limited space
  • New data on parents' attitudes and opinions about childhood immunization practices.
