Episode 2: Dr. Marina Shikhashvili
Presented by Immunization Advocates, Community Conversations on Vaccines will explore issues related to vaccines and immunization in low- and middle-income countries through interviews with on-the-ground professionals in those communities, including health workers and journalists.
In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Marina Shikhashvili, a primary healthcare expert in Tbilisi, Georgia, with over 30 years of experience. Vince Blaser and Francesca Montalto talk to Dr. Shikhashvili about the impact COVID-19 has had on the health workforce in Georgia, the challenges of treating patients remotely in a pandemic, and her call for global support to bolster health workers’ communication and community engagement skillsets on vaccines and immunization.
