People and the Pandemic

One year after the announcement of the first lockdown in March 2020, vaccination sites around the UK are a cause for hope in signalling the next milestone in tackling the COVID-19 pandemic.

King’s College London’s Guy’s campus and Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospital is one of the central London COVID-19 vaccination centre sites, and people from across King’s – researchers, staff, students and the wider community – have been involved in the response to COVID-19, with vaccination being the tip of the iceberg. 

People and the Pandemic is a collection of texts, quotations and podcasts highlighting the human stories behind King’s response to the pandemic and emphasising the many facets and interdisciplinary nature of pandemic problem-solving in a dynamic and emerging situation. Read on, and listen to the audio recordings, to hear some of the many ways King’s researchers, staff and students have been contributing their expertise and energy to pandemic problem-solving.

An outdoor installation at the Colonnade and Boland House on Great Maze Pond, part of King's Guy’s campus aims to enhance people’s experience of getting vaccinated, many of whom are from King’s home boroughs of Westminster, Southwark and Lambeth – and provide an insight into the work of the university over the past year.

How long does COVID-19 last? It depends. Over 390,000 people have taken part in a study to understand the short and long-term effects of COVID-19 on how we think, remember, reason and learn.
