WHAM Lunch & Learn: COVID Vaccine Questions and Answers
Wednesday, Feb. 24, 2021
noon - 12:50 p.m.
Please join if you'd like to learn about how the COVID vaccines work and the effect vaccination will have on our community. There's a lot of talk about the COVID vaccines as they become available. If you've wondered what an mRNA vaccine means, how the COVID vaccines were able to be developed so quickly, or what the public health impact of vaccination will be, we'll address these questions and more.
Macalester chemistry professor Leah Witus has made an educational video for science communication with the broader public to explain the biochemistry of the COVID mRNA vaccines. Dr. Steph Walters, MD, MPH is the medical director of the Hamre center and co-chair of the Infectious Disease Task Force. She has extensive experience in public health and has been instrumental in guiding our community through the pandemic.
