Program Description

Event Details

We all want the pandemic to be over, and vaccines could help. It's natural to have questions about the COVID-19 vaccines! Dr. Emily Bates is here to help navigate them. Dr. Bates is a professor at University of Colorado School of Medicine, a Harvard Medical School PhD graduate, mother of two young children, and the wife of a local ice cream company owner. Learn how the coronavirus does its damage, how the vaccines work, and get answers to questions like: How does my immunity compare if I have recovered from Covid vs. if I am vaccinated? Can these mRNA vaccines affect my genes? Can the vaccine affect my fertility? How are mRNA vaccines different from traditional vaccines? If I am not at risk for severe Covid-19, is there an advantage to getting vaccinated? If these vaccines work, why do vaccinated people care if I'm vaccinated? How do my personal decisions about Covid vaccination affect my community?

Registration is required below, and we'll email you the meeting link.
