Join the Science Museum and a panel of experts including Professor Chris Whitty and others who have been on the UK’s front line response to COVID-19 and the vaccine rollout for this free online talk.

We are almost a year and a half into the pandemic and there is now light at the end of the tunnel thanks to the development of vaccines and treatment. However, COVID-19 remains a threat that we must continue to take seriously.

As society returns to some semblance of normality, it may be all too tempting to let down our guard. The panel will share their experiences of the past eighteen months, why vaccination is key to protecting ourselves and our friends, families and colleagues, and the role that GPs, nurses and educators have in improving understanding of vaccinations.

Speakers include:

Professor Chris Whitty—Chief Medical Officer for England and UK Government Chief Medical Advisor

Professor Kevin Fenton—Regional Director, PHE London & Regional Director of Public Health, NHS London

Dr Kevin Fong—Broadcaster, author and anaesthetist, seconded to NHS England’s Emergency Preparedness Resilience and Response team for COVID-19

Dr Margaret McCartney—GP, writer and broadcaster

Razia Iqbal (Chair)—BBC news presenter for Newshour on the World Service and The World Tonight on Radio 4
