Topic summary
The Delta variant is proving to be a game-changer in the fight against COVID-19. Its high and seemingly indiscriminate infectivity has seen a huge surge in people requesting vaccination against the virus, particularly with the Pfizer vaccine. GPs are at the frontline, they are a major part of the solution. More than ever, GPs need to be across the latest in all aspects of COVID-19 and the vaccines available to combat this pandemic. In this webcast, Healthed will deliver answers from Australian experts on the important issues GPs need to know in order to stay up to speed in the war against this deadly and ubiquitous virus.
