Over 100 years after Louis Pasteur developed vaccines for diseases such as chicken cholera and anthrax, modern science has been able to eliminate or greatly lessen many communicable diseases through the use of vaccines. But even today, some people are unclear on how vaccines work. At our next Think Science event, we’ll learn about the vaccination process, and about the search for a new vaccine to fight COVID-19.
Because of the need for current physical distancing, this event was held online via GoToMeeting, rather than as a live, in-person event.
