Communicating COVID Part 2


A lot has happened since the Communicating COVID panel last fall—vaccines have been developed and approved; federal guidelines have changed since the election; and new questions have arisen.

Continuing the conversation from the previous panel, our community experts will dispel myths and misconceptions about the new coronavirus vaccines. Are they safe? What are the side effects? Where can I get my shots? How much does it cost? All of these questions will be addressed, alongside information about important local resources unique to the state of Virginia and the city of Richmond.

Join us for this discussion about the challenges of communicating accurate information about the COVID-19 vaccine.

The event is free and open to all and will be broadcast live on YouTube. No registration required. For questions or accommodations, please contact the VCU Libraries Events Office at
