Governance Watch: Focus on the Vaccine - Legal and Governance Challenges

FEBRUARY 22, 2021


The COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out in an environment where demand for the vaccine exceeds supply, with new strains of the virus emerging, and there is a multiplicity of constantly-changing rules that vary by country, state, and locality.

In this environment, companies are faced with a whole new set of challenges relating to staying on top of health and scientific developments; monitoring and abiding by different regulations; setting policies regarding the vaccine for employees, customers, and business partners; communicating with stakeholders; preparing for potential litigation; and having the right board governance and decision-making processes in place.
