Information

Why Attend?

  • Receive an overview of the regulatory scheme regarding vaccines
  • Understand public and private mandates for children, university students, and healthcare workers, consequences for non-vaccination, and available exemptions or alternatives
  • Learn about injury recovery under the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program
  • Understand how mandates, exemptions, and injury recovery will be adjusted for a COVID-19 vaccine approved under emergency measures

Virginia CLE® Essentials seminars are designed to get straight to the heart of what you need to know to succeed. These seminars are ideal whether you are a new attorney, a veteran checking in on current best practices, or considering expanding to a new practice area. This course is designed to guide counsel through the surprising array of legal issues that can arise within the context of vaccination, including an expected COVID-19 vaccine, from responses to vaccination mandates to recovery for vaccine-related injuries.

Vaccination has been ubiquitous in our society for decades. Many of our most important areas of law—education, labor, privacy, tort—have special exceptions carved out for the purpose of promoting or even mandating vaccination of the population.

Legal issues arise from many of these policies. Parents may wish to know their options with respect to the vaccination of their children, particularly where they have concerns regarding possible adverse reactions to vaccination. Who prevails where the parents have differing views on the subject? Private sector employees, particularly in the healthcare industry, may also face vaccination mandates from their employers, and may wish to know what their rights are with respect to such rules. Although actual vaccine-related injuries are rare, attorneys should be aware of the specialized tribunal that has been established to adjudicate most such claims. Lastly, the emergency measures deployed with respect to an expected COVID-19 vaccine invoke additional statutory and regulatory regimes, which will quickly become important for employers, agencies, and potential vaccine recipients to be aware of.

Topics to be covered include:

  • FDA regulation of vaccines
  • Vaccine mandates and exemptions for children
  • Vaccine mandates and exemptions for healthcare workers
  • Vaccine adverse event reporting requirements
  • Vaccine injury compensation
  • Special vaccination measures available during a pandemic response
