Should I Get the COVID Vaccine? with Dr Tania Gourley
In Should I Get the COVID Vaccine?, Immunologist Dr. Tania Gourley answers all of your questions about whether you should get vaccinated or not.
Dr. Tania Gourley received her Ph.D. in 2002 from the University of Michigan in Microbiology and Immunology. Her post-doctoral training was with Dr. Rafi Ahmed at Emory University, a world leader in immunological responses to viral infection and vaccination. Dr. Gourley's post-doctoral research focussed on the antibody and T cell responses to both viral infection and vaccination including influenza vaccination in immune compromised individuals. Currently, she is working as a Senior Project Coordinator in the Dept. of Microbiology and Immunology/Emory Vaccine Center at the Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Gourley manages research studies on viral immunity including a Covid-19 study which is evaluating the longevity of the immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in infected individuals over a two year period. Dr. Gourley grew up in New Zealand and currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband, two children, and three dogs.
In Should I Get the COVID Vaccine? Dr Gourley and I talk about:
Why she became an immunologist
Our family history of lock-downs and vaccination
Influenza, Tuberculosis and Polio
Trauma and the immune system

What's Andrew Jeremy Wakefield got to do with the COVID anti-vax movement? (Andrew Wakefield was struck off the medical register due to his involvement in the Lancet MMR autism fraud, a 1998 study that falsely claimed a link between the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism).
What are the benefits of a COVID vaccine?
Myth busting about the COVID vaccine
COVID is just like the flu, we should open up and just live with it
The COVID vaccines are new and are still in a trial phase – we are all guinea pigs
The COVID vaccines could cause infertility
The government are really injecting microchips into our arms
My immune system is top notch, I eat clean and I have a spiritual practice, my immune system will fight off COVID, I therefore have no need for a mask or the vaccine
You can still catch COVID even though you have the vaccine so there is no point in taking it
At the end of the World Health Organisation vaccine video series, they say, 'stay safe, stay healthy and stick with science' Why is it important that we stick with the science here and not just opinions?
There are a lot of people saying, ‘I’ll just wait and see’ – what is your advice for people who are still hesitant?
Personal choice and the anti-vax movement
