In Case You Missed It: When it comes to COVID vaccines, we all have unanswered questions. On Thursday, February 25th, 2021, Dr. Nabarun Dasgupta, a side effect scientist at the University of North Carolina, provided plain language interpretations of the approval process and what to expect from vaccine side effects. Through Dr. Dasgupta’s view of vaccine hesitancy as a rational reaction to mistreatment by and suspicion of medical systems, he was able to return a sense of control back into vaccine decisions through respect for choice and autonomy.
If you missed the training event, we now have a recording available from this important conversation around COVID vaccines. Please note that this video is based on our current knowledge of COVID: parts of this video may no longer be relevant as we learn more about this virus and its long-term effects as well as the long-term effects of the COVID vaccines.
