UW Next Generation Medicine presents: Making Sense of the COVID-19 Vaccine - Jan 21

Next Generation Medicine Webinar: Making Sense of the COVID-19 Vaccine, with Deborah H. Fuller, Ph.D.

The development of a vaccine to fight against SARS-CoV-2 is exciting news, but few of us understand what this means, beyond understanding it’s a possible barrier against COVID-19. How are vaccines developed and how do they work? Will all COVID vaccines be the same? How will we know if the vaccine is safe and effective? How often will we need to be vaccinated? Dr. Deborah Fuller, a vaccinologist and professor of microbiology at the University of Washington will discuss the answers to these questions and more. Dr. Fuller’s lab has been the site of the development of a vaccine candidate since January 2020.

Following Dr. Fuller's presentation, she will be joined by Dr. Daniel Getz, chief medical officer for Providence Sacred Heart Hospital, and Dr. Gretchen LaSalle, a family physician with MultiCare in Spokane, for a panel discussion specific to the greater Spokane area.
