Vaccine Management with Eric Paternoster
2 Feb 2021
Eric Paternoster, President and CEO of Infosys Public Services, discusses the successes and setbacks of the highly complex COVID-19 vaccine implementation as well as crucial strategies and innovative solutions for the future.
Hosted by Jeff Kavanaugh, VP and Head of the Infosys Knowledge Institute.
“We have a problem that's going to be with us for a long time. It will run beyond this year of 2021, for sure, but we'll continue to improve. The vaccines will be updated. Processes, policies will be put into place and we will figure this out.” - Eric Paternoster
How is the COVID vaccination program different from others, like the flu vaccine that states are familiar with?
Jeff introduces Eric.
Why do you think it's been so difficult for states to get the vaccines off the shelf and administered to people?
Here in the US, the Biden administration has said it will “move heaven and earth” to vaccine a hundred million people in a hundred days. First, do you think it's possible? And second, what do you think the new administration should do to speed up vaccine distribution?
What are some system limitations they're seeing and how can governments build or enhance their capabilities?
What's Infosys doing to help governments be ready for the COVID-19 program and deliver rapidly, safely and securely?
What's your view on how this entire program will evolve and how should a solution like this or any that's helping evolve to support it?
Eric recommends additional resources and shares his contact information.
