A Multidisciplinary Discussion Among Experts on Issues Surrounding COVID-19 Vaccines

About this Event

IF THIS DOESN'T CONCERN YOU, WE DON'T KNOW WHAT SHOULD!

Should me and my family get vaccinated? Is it safe? What happens if I don’t get vaccinated? Why am I not given priorities to vaccination? How do decisions made by the governments and big companies affect our vaccination access? 🤔

As the pandemic stretches on into the new phase where the vaccines have been developed, questions about safety, distribution and ethics are hotly debated. Relevant issues revolving around equality, free will and geopolitics also emerged. 🗣

In this multidisciplinary panel discussion, we invited experts from the fields of philosophy, public health, public policy, medicine, bioethics, political economy and law to discuss the most in-demand questions revolving around the vaccines, addressing your doubts and debunking falsehoods. ‼️

You will walk away with a more informed mind, and are able to make a more educated decision for yourself, your family and your country. 🧠💡

Join us on Saturday, March 6, where we bring together international experts from different industries to discuss on the issues surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines, just as they are being rolled out. 🔥

.

Some issues that will be discussed include:

💉 What are your opinions on expedited trials and manufacturing processes of vaccines? Should people avoid vaccination due to its expedited manufacturing process?

💉 For people who reject vaccinations, what are the spectrum of reasons? Are they all anti-vaxxers?

💉 Is it ethical to pursue the natural herd immunity strategy?

💉 Judging by the current scenario in your country, do you think we should mandate vaccination?
