23rd March: 7.00pm
Risking Your Life for a COVID Vaccine.
At this event, volunteers for human challenge trials will discuss their decision to be purposefully infected with COVID-19.
We’ll also cover what exactly a human challenge trial is, their use during and after an epidemic, and how trials are being used during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. You’ll hear from a group of COVID-19 challenge trial volunteers about why they decided to volunteer and what a challenge trial means to them.
This discussion will be followed by a Q&A session, where the audience will be able to ask the volunteers questions about the trials and their experiences. We hope you’ll join us!
