*Due to pandemic-related restrictions, in the 2021 spring semester a semester-long course entitled, “Vaccines Against Bacterial and Viral Infections Including COVID-19”, was designed based on previous Summer Institute courses. The course was taught virtually, in English, once a week, as part of the TAU SPH course offerings. The course was attended by over 70 participants from 11 different countries.
