    The Royal Institution: Vaccines: Warriors and Worriers

    DESCRIPTION

    How do vaccines work? Why are people sceptical despite the evidence? How does disinformation about vaccines spread online?

    Join Marianna Spring, Zania Stamataki and Abigail Thorn (PhilosophyTube) in a panel discussion hosted by Anjana Ahuja.

    Zania Stamataki is a senior lecturer and researcher in viral immunology at the University of Birmingham. She studies neutralising antibody responses to coronavirus infection and vaccination. Her team also studies immunity in liver infection, inflammation and cancer.

    Marianna Spring is the specialist disinformation and social media reporter for BBC News and World Service. Previously, she worked for BBC Newsnight and on the Guardian news desk.

    Abigail Thorn is a British YouTuber that discusses philosophical topics, often through the lens of current events. She has amassed over 800k subscribers and has raised over £100,000 for charity.

    This event is organised in partnership with journalist Angela Saini and the 'Challenging Pseudoscience' group at the Royal Institution.

    Exciting, hope they start with the polio data first, see if it compares to others research.

    So far all of the people I know who have gotten the vaccine, a list which is expanding very rapidly, none have had any bad reactions. A couple people felt sick for a day. The rest only had a sore arm.

    In Arizona, my family knows a handful of people who got the vaccine, but they'd already been exposed to the virus and got sick before their shot could take. Most have come through OK from the virus but in all cases it was much worse than any vaccine effects.

    This is just a sampling, of course.
