Imperial College London are hosting a Q&A session focused on COVID-19 vaccines.
Participants will have the opportunity to put their questions about the COVID-19 vaccine to a vaccine scientist Dr Paul McKay and medical doctor Liz Whittaker.
The event in the words of the organisers:
Is there something you want to know about COVID-19 vaccines? Or want to sit back with a cup of tea and hear the latest?
As we vaccinate more and more people, we’re hearing about vaccines everywhere, but sometimes hard to know what’s true, what’s not and to keep up with the latest.
The good news is, in this Q&A, you can questions to people working on the front line – consultant doctor Liz Whittaker, and COVID-19 vaccine researcher Dr Paul McKay from Imperial College London.
Keeping us on track and making sure your questions get answered will be brilliant local White City resident and change maker, Hanan Ghouneim.

How the Q&A works
It’s free and open to everyone. It will be streamed on YouTube and you will be sent the YouTube link before the event.
We’ll be taking questions in the YouTube chat, or if you’d prefer, you can send your questions in when you register.
The main focus of the event is Q&A so we’ll try and get through as many questions as we can!
