As global attention focuses on vaccine development to stop the spread of COVID-19, this webinar will explore the topic of vaccines from the lens of bioethics and religion, with perspectives from various health disciplines. Where do individual rights fit in when public health is threatened? What roles do psychology, faith, and reasoning play in decision-making about whether to trust or reject science? How do different health professions contribute to vaccine development, research, vaccine distribution, and public health education? This program is geared toward health care providers, ethics committee members, members of faith communities, and anyone interested in learning more about these issues at this extraordinary time in our interdependent society.
