Vaccines: History, Science & Ethics

Thursday, October 29, 2020, 1:00 AM - 2:30 AM

A virtual presentation by Jacob M. Appel, M.D., J.D., M.P.H.

Since the development of smallpox vaccines in the 18th century, vaccination against illness has been the subject of both scientific pursuit and ethical debate. Many questions relating to efficacy, risk and equitable access have returned to the public eye in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Should volunteers be intentionally exposed to a disease in order to speed vaccinate generation? Who should get priority to vaccine access if doses are limited? To what degree should people be able to opt out of vaccines and should they face any penalties for doing so? Never in recent memory has the subject of vaccination been more relevant or more important. This talk is intended to be educational, accessible and fun.

Cost: Free but registration is required.
