Vaccination Decisions: Rolling out the Vaccine
Contact:    

Join the Museum of Science for the first in a series of three virtual Town Halls where we discuss the critical decisions our society faces as we begin vaccination roll out.

As many states, including Massachusetts, have begun their phased vaccination roll-out plans, this kickoff conversation will highlight the process of COVID-19 vaccination dissemination and vaccine distribution with experts answering questions such as:

How will the vaccine be transported and distributed?

Who decides how the COVID vaccination is distributed and disseminated? How are these vast tasks set into motion?

Who decides who receives the vaccine first? How can the vaccination process be more equitable?

After hearing from our panelists, participants can join small group conversations to share their concerns, ask questions, and continue this important discussion. There will be a group for Spanish-speakers.

Wind Down Wednesday: Hygge and Home
Contact:    

During this long, cold winter, we invite you to wind down with a free virtual program that fosters creativity and mindfulness. In partnership with independent mixologists, crafters, artists and other experts, Wind Down Wednesday offers an optimistic approach to the middle of the week.

January is all about at-home comfort as we celebrate hygge and the serene portrait of author Marilynne Robinson from the exhibition “Her Story: A Century of Women Writers.” First, Megan Segarra of Meganda Kitchen will demonstrate her cocktail (or mocktail) recipe for infused spiked tea. Sip away while we discuss the portrait and read excerpts from Robinson’s beloved books. Then learn about candles and aromatherapy and center yourself through a meditative botanical watercolor workshop inspired by Robinson’s portrait.

COVID-19: The race for a vaccine - in the UK
Contact:    
Will vaccines provide the solution to the coronavirus pandemic?
December 2020 has seen the rollout of the first regulatory approved vaccine against COVID-19 in the UK and many other countries, providing a glimmer of hope for many. However, the path to effectively managing the disease has only just begun. With potential public hesitation and misinformation around the effectiveness of the vaccines, transparency and communication around the process has never been more important. How have vaccines against the virus been developed so quickly? How do we know they are safe?
Hosted by Professor Brian Cox, join our panel of expert speakers to discuss the collaborative global effort of the scientific community over the past year to develop COVID-19 vaccines. We’ll explore what we currently know about the vaccines that are being deployed or in development and take a forward look at what the next few months and years may hold for us as we continue to tackle this universal public health crisis.
This event is part of a series of Royal Society events discussing the scientific response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Catch up with the first event on the Royal Society’s YouTube channel.
