COVID-19 vaccine Q&A

On this page, you will find video question and answer sessions about vaccines for COVID-19. We took vaccine questions and concerns from the public on our Instagram channel and put them to our BSI members and expert immunology scientists, Dr Megan MacLeod and Prof Sheena Cruickshank. In the videos, Megan and Sheena answer your questions and explore the details of when vaccines may become available, who will receive the vaccines, how long immunity might last to a vaccine, how herd immunity can protect us and lots more.

It’s important to understand and address vaccine concerns that are prominent in public discussion and may lead to hesitancy to vaccination. By answering your vaccine questions, the BSI hopes to provide expert information to help everyone make informed decisions about vaccines and their health. For more information on how we're championing the critical role of vaccination and vaccine research in advancing global health, check out our Celebrate Vaccines website.
