COVID-19 Vaccine Info Session with Dr. Maria Tokuyama

 

Do you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine? Do you have concerns about whether you should get vaccinated or not? In this seminar, Dr. Tokuyama, a viral immunologist in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology, provides an overview of how the COVID-19 vaccine works and how the vaccine generates an immune response that protects us against severe disease caused by SARS-CoV-2. The discussion is a live recording about why vaccination is important for individuals and the larger community, and a Q&A session.

 

Dr. Tokuyama is a new faculty in the Department of Microbiology & Immunology (M&I). She is a viral immunologist who has extensively studied the interface between viruses and the immune system. During this pandemic, she has also contributed to a number of research projects on SARS-CoV-2 testing and COVID-19 immune responses.
