Infectious Christmas

Our Infection Lecture 'Rudolph the Sneezing reindeer' is run by Dr Alan Radford, and with the help of Santa and Rudolph teaches children about germs, what they are and how they can make us poorly. The lecture finishes with some simple practical tips for children on how they can stop themselves (and their friends) getting ill.
