Erie County Sponsors COVID-19 Vaccine Community Forum
As the COVID-19 Vaccine has started to roll out and people have been getting vaccinated, there still remain millions of people who have yet to get the vaccine. There are also tens-of-millions of questions that still remain unanswered in communities across the country.
To help answer questions that people have, and in an attempt to increase the number of people who will take the vaccine, a large coalition of people and organizations have partnered together to bring a COVID-19 Vaccine Community Forum.
The COVID-19 Vaccine: Let's Talk About It forum is going to be a public session for people to get information, ask questions, and address the concerns that patients, clients, families, and community members have about the COVID-19 Vaccine.
The forum is scheduled for Friday, April 16th, and will take place from 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m.
The forum is sponsored and hosted by The Erie County Department of Health and Erie County Health Commissioner Dr. Gale Burstein, along with CONECT Buffalo, the Community Health Worker Network of Buffalo, along with a group of other community leaders. This group includes The Buffalo Prenatal-Perinatal Network, The Buffalo Urban League, The Ferry Street Health & Wellness Project, Native American Community Services, The Partnership for the Public Good, and PUSH Buffalo.
If you're interested in attending this free public forum, you can sign up to attend here.
This is going to be a great opportunity to learn more about the health benefits of becoming fully vaccinated.
