Bonus episode: Kids, COVID-19 and vaccines
In late September, we held an event online called COVID-19 vaccines – your questions answered Part 2, with the aim of getting our experts to answer as many questions about COVID-19 vaccines from the audience as possible within an hour and a half. As with our first event of the same name back in March, we couldn’t get through all of them, so we’re bringing you this bonus episode of the podcast to answer a few more.
We were overwhelmed with questions about vaccines and kids, so in this bonus episode we welcome back to the podcast Associate Professor Margie Danchin, who was one of our panellists.
Margie is a consultant paediatrician at the Royal Children’s Hospital and an Associate Professor and Clinician Scientist at the University of Melbourne and Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. As leader of the Vaccine Uptake Group, her research focuses mainly on vaccine confidence, acceptance, and uptake, particularly among high risk-groups and in low and middle-income countries.
