On the 4th of February 2021 we held an all female expert webinar to discuss COVID-19 vaccines. It was an enlightening discussion focusing on vaccine hesitancy, addressing concerns, and answering questions about taking the jab. There were lots of questions – from why Black and Asian communities are suffering a disproportionate impact from covid-19 – to safety concerns about covid-19 vaccines, and questions about possible side effects, for example on fertility or during pregnancy.
Our speakers were:
Dr Sara Saigol, GP, Dr Kiran Rahim, paediatrician, Dr Shagufta Ahmed, former pharmaceutical researcher and Dr Muna Abdel Aziz, Director of Public Health.
