Several vaccines to protect against COVID-19 have now been approved in various countries and large scale immunization programmes have just started. There are so many types of vaccines: What is the difference? How do they protect us? For how long? How do we know if they are safe and if they work? Do we still need to follow all precautions after taking the vaccine? Come join us as we discuss everything about the COVID-19 vaccines.
