QUENCHING CURIOSITY Presents Covid-19 Vaccination & Public Health

Wednesday, March 16, 2022 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Northside Drafthouse 3000 Northside Blvd, Ste 800, Richardson, TX 75080

Messenger RNA (mRNA) was discovered in the 1960s. It took nearly thirty years for researchers to start using it in vaccines. Nearly 30 years after that, Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine became the first mRNA product to achieve full FDA approval in the United States.


So clearly, there’s a lot to mRNA.


 Join us as Dr. Caroline Jones, assistant professor of bioengineering, explains mRNA, the science and safety of mRNA vaccinations, and the implications on public health for the Dallas/Richardson community.


Quenching Curiosity is a community outreach program sponsored by The Office of Research at The University of Texas at Dallas. Our purpose is to inform and educate while having a bit of fun. Quenching Curiosity events are free and open to the public and occur on the third Wednesday of each month at the Northside Drafthouse and Eatery. Follow us on Facebook at
