On May 18, 2022, Treatment Action Group (TAG), the Black AIDS Institute (BAI), and the Southern AIDS Coalition (SAC) participated in this fun and informative Instagram Live discussion commemorating HIV Vaccine Awareness. Day.
TAG stands proudly alongside the TB community to issue this press statement calling for increasing European funding for TB vaccine development, just before the sixth Global Forum on TB Vaccines convenes in Toulouse, France.
These three fact sheets were developed by TAG in partnership with the COVID-19 Prevention Network (CoVPN) and the Black AIDS Institute (BAI), and they aim to foster community understanding of COVID-19 vaccine research and development, as well as highlight community perspectives on the topic.
On Wednesday, May 19, 2021,Treatment Action Group (TAG), Black AIDS Institute, (BAI), and the COVID Prevention Trials Network (CoVPN) will convene a virtual news conference and roundtable discussion to disseminate findings from a soon-to-be published report: Breaking Barriers: Surveying Community Perspectives on COVID-19 Vaccine Research.
Today’s decision by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to grant an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for the Pfizer-BioNTech mRNA vaccine is an important step toward bringing the COVID-19 pandemic under control in the United States.
Treatment Action Group (TAG) and AVAC welcome today’s announcement that preliminary data from the efficacy trial of Pfizer/BioNTech’s mRNA COVID-19 vaccine indicates a high level of protection against COVID-19. Our organizations urge caution, however, given the very limited information that is available only through a company press release.
