APAAACI ALLERGY WEEK 2021

Managing allergies during this global pandemic is crucial. As we roll out the COVID-19 vaccines in the Asia Pacific region, it is crucial to understand the importance of vaccination and to address facts and myths surrounding the vaccine.

APAAACI will be hosting APAAACI Allergy Week 2021 on the theme COVID-19: Allergies and Vaccines, Understanding the Facts & Myths. We cordially invite you to join us for a webinar on 12th April 2021, from 19:00-20:30 (GMT+8, Singapore Standard Time).

The webinar will provide better understanding of the science of the vaccines, safe implementation, and improved physician understanding and public awareness on the benefits and safety of the vaccines.
