The immunology of COVID-19 vaccines: a webinar for healthcare workers



The British Society for Immunology is pleased to hold “The immunology of COVID-19 vaccines: a webinar for healthcare workers” on Tuesday 2 February 2021 from 12:00-12:45 GMT.

Healthcare workers remain the most trusted voice when it comes to providing advice, answering questions, and addressing concerns about vaccines. This educational and interactive webinar aims to increase healthcare workers’ confidence in talking to the public about COVID-19 vaccines. By supporting healthcare professionals, we hope to continue our mission to provide evidence-based information on COVID-19 vaccines to those who need or want it.

This webinar is for all healthcare workers who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of COVID-19 vaccines and build their skills in tackling common concerns. This webinar may also be of interest to volunteer vaccinators or healthcare staff who often interact with patients who are going to get vaccinated, such as GP receptionists.

Our speakers will introduce the immunology of COVID-19 vaccines, followed by a Q&A discussion including their own experiences of engaging with the public about vaccines. Most of the session will be dedicated to answering your questions on how to listen to and address concerns and have constructive conversations about vaccination.
