Abstract

On Monday 1st March, 2021, Dr Ruta Furmonaviciene (Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Science/Immunology), and Dr Giuliana Tiripelli (Senior Lecturer in Digital Journalism and Media Discourse) run a free online event about ‘Community Ethics and Effective Communication’ with biomedical and journalism students at De Montfort University. The aim of the event was to illustrate the main myths about vaccinations, with a focus on Covid-19, and to analyse the reasons for the presence of these myths. The event also aimed to introduce the science behind the vaccination, and to point towards the reliable information sources available to the public. Finally, the event aimed to stimulate critical reflections on how journalism contributes to shape the vaccination debate.
