RSE produces educational video answering Covid-19 vaccine questions

A new video resource designed for children in Scotland has been released as part of the RSE Post-Covid-19 Futures Commission, to answer some of their biggest questions about the Covid-19 vaccine.

Experts Professor Francisca Mutapi FAAS FZAS FRSE, a Professor in Global Health Infection and Immunity, and Dr Deborah O’Neil OBE FRSE, CEO of NovaBiotics answer questions from pupils at Clyde Primary School, Darnley Primary School and Visual Impairment Unit, St Andrews Primary School and Troqueer Primary School in the Data, Evidence & Science working group‘s latest piece of work.

Understanding the Covid-19 vaccine

Speaking of the video, Professor Niamh Nic Daeid, RSE Fellow and Chair of Data, Evidence & Science said:

“The children in these videos ask really insightful questions about how vaccines work and our expert Fellows have provided answers to these questions in a way that are accessible and understandable. We hope this video will be a useful resource for teachers who have a key role to play in explaining to their pupils what is happening in the world.”
