ASI Online Fireside Chat | Vaccines... Find out the facts!

A free Q&A session, tailored to the family and friends of ASI members and the general public who simply want accurate answers.

It's confusing when there are so many mixed messages out there.

Come along to our Fireside Chats; a free Q&A session where you get your questions answered, based on science.

Ask an Immunologist

Ask an Immunologist your question so YOU can be informed, and then share accurate info with your loved ones.

When you attend our event, you can type your question in the Q&A box in Zoom.
This question will be read out by our Moderator to the Speaker who will answer your question live.

Alternatively, you can email us your question ahead of time to jump the queue!

Email us your question now

Some great questions we'll be answering

  • "What are the prospects for a vaccine for coronavirus?"
  • "Can you talk about the body’s immune responses when it encounters a virus?"
  • "If a vaccine is available, would that be one dose or would we need numerous boosters as the coronavirus mutates?"
  • "What impacts whether a person develops long last immunity against a virus, other than mutation?"
