Everyone is talking about vaccination! But what is vaccination, and why is it so important? With the spread of coronavirus, many questions require precise and timely answers. For this reason, we propose the series Science in a Minute, featuring one-minute videos to clarify some notions related to public health.

The Science in a Minute project, promoted by the Swiss School of Public Health, aims to provide, through a series of short videos, some of the answers to the most frequently asked questions about scientific facts and topics related to public health in order to make them clear and accessible to everyone.

Dr Rebecca Amati, project manager of the Corona Immunitas Ticino project, guides us on this path, explaining complex concepts and processes in layman's terms. The series is constantly updated according to the evolution of the pandemic. A weekly one-minute clip tackling a different topic will be available.

This second video explains the meaning and importance of vaccination.


Watch the video (in Italian; French and German available on the dedicated YouTube channel):
