As you may know, India is currently fighting a second variant and wave of COVID-19. This variant, known as B1617, is much more contagious and fatal. With over 21.5 million cases in India as of May 5, the country is suffering terribly. Only 2.1% of the population is fully vaccinated and there are no more vaccines to give. They truly need our help, and The Smiling Foundation is working to help those battling COVID-19.

The Smiling Foundation was presented with an amazing opportunity to hold a Q&A Webinar with rheumatologist, Doctor Dipti Doshi on February 11th, 2021. Together, she was able to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccines and debunk myths as well. In this session, some of our youngest volunteers also were able to ask questions regarding future predictions about the vaccine while our highschoolers were also able to gain a general knowledge about what to expect in the coming months.
With the vaccines just becoming available to the general public, many were skeptical on whether or not it is safe and how good the efficacy rate for each vaccine was. After clearing up some common misconceptions, we went on to talk about the vaccine itself and how it may affect society within future months! We were also able to conduct a Zoom Session, Facebook, and Instagram Live for our virtual viewers.

The Smiling Foundation held its second successful Webinar on April 9th, 2021 with lung specialist, Dr. Manoj Majmudar. In hour-long discussion, the TSF team was able to ask questions and discuss relevant topics regarding current COVID cases and how specifically COVID-19 affected the lungs. Some of our youngest volunteers ranging from the age of nine, all the way to the age of 18 were able to learn something new about the most recent FDA approved vaccines and what they could mean in the future for our society.
A large number of the TSF team was able to ask Dr. Majmudar questions in person while our virtual members and attendees were online. After our pre-made questions for the session, we were also able to open up the floor for questions from the audience to answer as well. Overall, the session was a major success and we definitely recommend you check it out! If you would like to see the recorded webinar for yourself, they are now available on Spotify and Youtube!
