During the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccine-related issues were elevated to front page news on a daily basis. As the international scientific community raced to develop safe and effective vaccines, people were also debating about the government’s ability to take over private manufacturing facilities for production, employers’ ability to mandate vaccination for its employees, and the potential side effects of the vaccines. Our speakers will address several of these vaccine- related issues and discuss: 1) the Defense Production Act and limits on the government’s ability to use private facilities for the public good; 2) employment law issues relating to vaccination requirements and status; and 3) litigation relating to potential side effects from vaccines.


  • Defense Production Act And vaccine production
  • Employment law implications of vaccination
  • The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and vaccine litigation at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims
