Vaccine initiative: are vaccines safe?
This cross-curricular activity introduces the concept of vaccination, specifically for COVID-19, using stimulus materials enabling student discussion opportunities. The way in which vaccines work, what they contain and the most common side effects are explained using simple scientific terminology. Some anti-vaccine arguments are scientifically dismantled via a series of well referenced studies.
This links to key stage three and four science and citizenship courses.
