This time last year, the World Health Organization (WHO) was just beginning to declare Covid-19 as a pandemic and vaccines were a distant dream. Now, thanks to the global scientific community, there is a range of vaccines available that will hopefully set the world 'back to normal.'  However, with this development, new questions about the Covid-19 vaccines have emerged. Join us for a science-based conversation with Dr. Sarah Borwein as she gives a comprehensive explanation of the various vaccines and clarifies the misconceptions around them.
