What are vaccination recalls and why are so crucial? Vaccination recalls are not new. Just think of the tetanus vaccination, which should be repeated every 10-20 years. This episode discusses why recalls are recommended for Covid-19 and what are they for.

The Science in a Minute project carries on. Promoted by the Swiss School of Public Health, it 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.
