Are you interested in COVID-19 vaccine safety research? Join us at our upcoming Open Door event on COVID-19 vaccine safety research!

About this event

We are delighted to announce the reschedule of the much-anticipated COVID-19 vaccine safety research event, now taking place on Thursday 11 November 2021 from 11:30am - 12:30pm.

Vaccine safety research has played a vital role in the world’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. There are currently four vaccines approved for use against COVID-19 in the UK, with almost 90% of the UK population having had their first dose, and over 80% fully vaccinated. This rapid vaccine rollout would not have been possible without the ground-breaking research taking place across the UK.

This online and free open-door event is open to all members of the public. At this event, attendees will have the opportunity to learn more and ask questions about research into the effects and safety of COVID-19 vaccines through the safe and secure access and use of health data enabled by the Data and Connectivity National Core Studies programme and the UK’s national institute for health data science, Health Data Research UK (HDR UK).

At this event you will hear from inspirational leaders in health data science, including:

  • Lara Edwards (Senior Programme Manager, Data and Connectivity)
  • Cathie Sudlow (Director, British Heart Foundation Data Science Centre)
  • Steven Kerr (University of Edinburgh)
  • Martina Patone (University of Oxford)

Sharing insights on how this research has come together over the last 18 months and what this means for the UK moving forward, this is sure to be an insightful and engaging session. We will also focus on how input from patient and public contributors has helped to shape this important work, and there will be dedicated time for questions from the audience.

PLEASE NOTE: if you have previously registered for this event you will need to register again for the rescheduled time. We apologise for any inconvenience.

About Data and Connectivity:

Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) are co-leading a programme, Data and Connectivity, using research and health data to understand COVID-19 and to help our short-term and long-term responses to the pandemic.

The Data and Connectivity programme is one of six studies, known as the National Core Studies, that support the UK’s research response to COVID-19. Established by the government in October 2020, the six National Core Studies use data to identify and respond to essential questions on COVID-19 to inform policy and planning in the UK.
