Viruses and vaccines – new myth-busting RCPath resource

Viruses and Vaccines, a new resource to stimulate discussion and improve understanding of the vital role vaccines have in preventing disease and improving public health, has been launched by The Royal College of Pathologists.

Combining art and science, Viruses and vaccines is a set of free online activities and resources designed to be fun and engaging for people of all ages. Participants will be encouraged to be creative with colouring and origami, while hearing from pathologists about their vital work.

Developed by immunologists, virologists and microbiologists in collaboration with public engagement consultants, the resources have been created to be easy to access and use.

Dr Mike Osborn, President of The Royal College of Pathologists, said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has led to the largest vaccination programme in the history of the NHS. The College and the wider healthcare community have a crucial role in building public confidence in vaccination. With a focus on COVID-19 vaccines and the role of pathology during the pandemic, Viruses and vaccines sets out to engage and inform, helping to dispel many common myths and misconceptions.”

Launched as part of British Science Week (5–14 March 2021), the resources will accompany online events where families, as well as school and university students, will have the opportunity to hear from pathologists and have their questions answered.
