IDWeek Breaks Records, Goes Viral

Experiencing the post-IDWeek blues? Relieve some of your favorite memories by checking out all three daily recap videos highlighting key moments of the conference that took place Oct. 2-6 in Washington, D.C. With over 10,500 registered attendees from more than 90 countries, this year’s conference was a record-breaker in more ways than one.

Not only did the meeting shatter previous attendance records, it also went viral during a #WhyIVaccinate Twitterstorm designed to educate the public on the importance of vaccination in the face of increasing vaccine hesitancy across the country. During the Twitterstorm kicked off by IDWeek attendees, #WhyIVaccinate was the #1 trending hashtag in DC, #5 trending hashtag in the U.S. and #28 trending hashtag in the world while also receiving national coverage from Newsweek and Forbes.
