COVID-19 Vaccine: Between Myth and Reality

Hosted by the Young Scientists Committee

Thursday, March 25, 2021
12:00 PM – 1:00 PM ET

The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 has rapidly spread across the globe leading to the COVID-19 pandemic accountable for more than 2.6 million deaths. Throughout 2020, the outbreak has brought many countries to lockdown, burdened healthcare systems, and placed the world in an unprecedented economic recession. With the recent Emergency Use Authorization by the FDA, COVID-19 vaccines are becoming available for public administration. However, some remain hesitant to receive the vaccine, thus putting scientific and public health efforts at stake. This webinar by Dr. Paul Thomas, a faculty member at the Department of Immunology, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, will highlight the facts about currently available COVID-19 vaccines and therapies in efforts to address such uncertainty, and to increase awareness about vaccination. The audience is encouraged to submit their questions to be answered by the speaker after the talk.
