What You Need to Know about Vaccines

Thursday, December 10, 2020 – 5 to 6 pm

The United States is in the midst of approving a few COVID-19 vaccines for emergency use. Join Doylestown Health infectious disease pharmacist Elisa Morgan as she discusses how vaccines work to protect us from illness and answers frequently asked questions about the highly anticipated new COVID-19 vaccines.

During this presentation, you will:

  • Learn about vaccines. Discover how vaccines work, how they are approved, why they are beneficial to our health and a brief history of the vaccines.
  • Take a deeper dive into the novel vaccine technology, including messenger RNA vaccines (mRNA) and Viral Vector vaccines. Learn how these new vaccines “teach” our cells how to make a portion of the target (COVID-19) virus without risking exposure to a weakened or “killed” form of the virus.
  • Leave prepared with the information you need to approach your upcoming COVID-19 vaccination with confidence and what you can expect after your COVID-19 vaccination.

Special guest, Doylestown Health Infectious Disease physician Michael Kimzey, MD, will also be on hand to offer his expertise about new approaches to vaccines and answer all of your questions.
