Shook Offers Summer COVID-19 Webinar Series on the PREP Act

Join Shook’s PREP Act Task Force for a summer webinar series taking a deep dive into the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act and its effects on emergency products and services offered by life science companies, general manufacturers and health care providers in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this on demand webinar series, Navigating PREP Act Immunity, 12 Shook attorneys will guide viewers through the information and actions needed to gain PREP Act immunity in three industry-focused webinars.

Focus on Life Science

This webinar addresses implications of the PREP Act for life science companies, with Shook attorneys charting a course through the path to legal immunity. Viewers learn about FDA law and how it relates to the PREP Act, consider how products are distributed and go through an immunity checklist to learn more about how life science companies can protect against unnecessary litigation. 

Focus on General Manufacturing

Shook attorneys break down what general manufacturers need to know concerning PREP Act protections in this webinar, showing examples of products manufactured, key questions every manufacturer should ask about its products, FDA regulatory requirements, limitations on distributions, when PREP Act protections can end and PREP Act checklists for both products and distribution. 

Focus on Health Care Providers

What are the implications for the PREP Act for health care providers? Who is considered a covered person? A qualified person? What is a covered activity? A covered health condition? Is the product you’re using a covered countermeasure? Shook attorneys help health care providers answer these questions, with a final takeaway emphasis on why facts, documentation and planning are of key importance. 

Other information provided within this series include an introductory overview of the PREP Act, covered countermeasures, and options and considerations that may provide protections when PREP Act immunity is not applicable. 

The webinars, alongside additional resources, are also accessible through Shook’s newly launched PREP Act Intelligence Hub.
