Covid-19 support: Some Information on Vaccines and How they Work

The Vaccination training is a very simple outline, in our own words and as we understand it, of how vaccines work, giving information around why people believe conspiracy theories rather than what is true and also addressing some of the many false theories that abound in people in the workplace and outside. It serves to address vaccine hesitancy and fears. It will not persuade hardened anti-vaxxers, but in my experience there are more fears and hesitancy based on lack of information, rather than convictions based on facts.

What you gain:
Some simple information about the science around the vaccine, what spike proteins are, how these are incorporated in the vaccine, what our own immune responses do, how we develop immunity against Covid-19. We also unpack some of the many fears and misunderstandings that are swirling around about the vaccine, and discuss what has been proven to be true and untrue. We also supply a resource list at the end of the training.

Disclaimer: This is not meant to be medical advice, it is based on information we got from medical doctors and experts, who specialize in Covid-19 response, and accredited scientific articles and publications on the subject. If you have any medical questions, please consult your doctor.
