Dear Vacineers,
Our speaker this month -- VDC member-in-good-standing Minal Patel -- will be Zooming in from Geneva, Switzerland and, to accomodate the time zone difference between me and she, it was either move the time of our meeting from dinner to lunch or ship a VDC speaker's mug to her, prefilled with hightest expresso, to keep Dr. Patel awake until cowbell time.

Given supply chain concerns it seemed safest to just move the meeting time, so set a calendar reminder NOW to attend this month's meeting of the Vaccine LUNCH Club.

A lot of things are waning these days:

What about Covid? Is the pandemic waning or is just political interest in the pandemic? What about Vaccine Effectiveness? Is that waning too as the number of new variants and sub-variants outpaces new vaccine design?

Or ARE new Variants of Concern still nipping at our heels? Inquiring minds want to know!

Here are some of the way cool topics Dr. Patel will be covering in her talk on May 4th:

I know that you are not going to want to miss the FINAL VDC of the 2021-2022 Season so REGISTER NOW!
