COVID-19 vaccine - Dispelling the myths and misinformation

Tuesday, 26 January, 2021 - 19:00 to 20:30
Organised/hosted by: 
Bristol Race Equality COVID-19 Steering Group


This event is your opportunity to ask local healthcare professionals about the COVID-19 vaccine.

There are many myths and pieces of misinformation circulating about the different vaccines (currently three vaccines have been approved), so it is important that you have the chance to get your questions answered by a qualified professional, rather than an unverified source of information. 

The expert panel at this online event will include Dr Rajeka Lazarus, Consultant in Infectious Diseases at University Hospital Bristol & Weston. 

Typical questions you might want to ask at this event:

  • Are the vaccines safe?
  • How did the vaccines get approved so quickly?
  • Will I get coronavirus from a vaccine?
  • What are the side-effects of the vaccine?

The event is run by the Bristol Race Equality COVID-19 Steering Group, Bristol City Council, and the Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group. It will be opened by Councillor Asher Craig, Deputy Mayor of Bristol.
