Dr Cara Booker will be hosting an online multidisciplinary workshop focusing on COVID vaccination on 16 March 2022, from 3pm to 5pm (UK time).

We will present the results of recent British Academy-funded research conducted in the UK and the USA in January-February 2022 looking at vaccine misinformation and inequalities.

This will be an informal meeting and there will be plenty of time to discuss. We will be welcoming a mix of academics, health practitioners and policy makers.

Please email Cara Booker if you would be interested in attending and we will send a Zoom meeting invitation. Feel free to forward the invitation to colleagues who might be interested as well.
