The International Society for Vaccines (ISV) launched a virtual congress series as the leading platform for key COVID‐19 vaccine developersto share their progress and for the global vaccine community to contribute their collective expertise and wisdom about broader aspects of the global pandemic vaccine response. The aims were threefold: 1) to provide timely information about the processes put in place by regulatory agencies and NGOs for COVID-19 vaccine development, 2) to present primary data from groups developing vaccines, and 3) to provide a forum for discussion by experts about key challenges that confront the COVID-19 vaccine development process.
