Safety. Misinformation. Roll-out. The exciting recent COVID-19 vaccine announcements, including today’s UK approval of the Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, are cause for great optimism. But we are in unchartered territory. Never before have vaccines been developed at this speed, billions of doses need to be made and accepted, and the world faces an 'infodemic'.

This poses many questions. Now you have a chance to speak directly with the experts in LSHTM’s fifth live Q&A with Professor Mark Jit and Dr Pauline Paterson, hosted by broadcast journalist, Felicity Barr.


I invite HIFA members to participate and share your observations afterwards by email to:
