Pragmatist Vaccine Antigen Prioritization

EuFMD-WRL Workshop

The Pragmatist tool: Prioritization of Antigen Management with International Surveillance has been developed by the EuFMD and World Reference Laboratory (WRL) to support risk-based decision-making for vaccine banks and FMD preparedness. Output from the Pragmatist tool is now used by the WRL to recommend FMDV vaccines for inclusion in vaccine banks. Although the Pragmatist was originally developed to support vaccine bank managers in FMD-free countries, it may also be adapted for use in endemic regions.

Objective: To familiarize participants with the Pragmatist tool to inform vaccine selection for preparedness of an incursion of FMD.

Target audience: 

  • Risk managers and science advisors in FMD-free and endemic countries.

  • Max. 30 participants.

​​

Workshop leaders: Melissa McLaws (EuFMD) and Don King (WRL).

Venue: OS18 venue, Borgo Egnazia.

When: 01 Nov.

Cost:  Eur 100 (Eur 50 if you have registered for the OS18 earlier than July 23rd). Includes lunch.
