COVID Vaccine Initiative


The COVID Vaccine Initiative (CVI) aims to ensure the development of safe, effective, and accessible vaccines for those most vulnerable to COVID-19: aging populations and those living in low- and middle-income countries. It leverages HVP’s global clinical research consortium, including newly established collaborations with the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health focused on deciphering effective immunity in aging populations; FHI 360, a global nonprofit research and human development organization with extensive experience working in low and middle-income countries; and the University of Minnesota’s Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, a global leader in addressing public health preparedness and emerging infectious disease response.
