Considering questions and concerns about COVID vaccinations
Sunday, August 1, 2021
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Vaccinations against COVID-19 offer a pathway out of the pandemic, but like any new technology, deciding when and whether to get them can be complicated.

There is a lot of information to sift through, and it is normal to feel nervous or unsure. Here’s your chance to learn the science behind the COVID vaccines and to get your questions answered by leading researchers from the University of Illinois. 

Panelists: 

  • Dr. Claudia Lutz, PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
  • Dr. Danny Ryerson, PhD in Molecular and Integrative Physiology from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
  • Dr. Daniel Urban, PhD in Evolutionary Developmental Biology from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
