Designing an Effective and Efficient System
for Distributing COVID-19 Vaccines

A panel of key personnel at the Cornell Institute for Disease and Disaster Preparedness will demonstrate how the mathematical science of supply chain management is essential to crafting an effective, efficient and optimized national vaccination strategy for COVID-19. Among topics to be covered include: engineering principles which govern the operation of a transparent vaccine distribution system, how these principles can form the basis for a national vaccine strategy, the features of such a national strategy and how vaccines should be allocated throughout the system.
