Webinar will be available to view after event
Essentia Health will host a public webinar at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 14, to emphasize the importance of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, clarify vaccine myths and highlight recent COVID-19 trends and the prevalence of variants.
The program is titled: “Undecided about the COVID-19 vaccine? Essentia Health experts address your concerns in a live online forum.” The hour-long event can be accessed at https://tinyurl.com/58m6pdsn. Anyone is welcome to attend and no registration is required.
The program will include presentations from Dr. Bill Heegaard, president of Essentia Health’s West Market; Dr. Amanda Noska and Dr. Bertha Ayi, infectious disease physicians; and Elena Willmot, senior business intelligence analyst.
The second half of the webinar will feature a question-and-answer session. Attendees can ask vaccine-related questions and raise vaccine-related concerns via the “Q&A” function in Zoom. Essentia Health will do its best to address as many questions and concerns as time allows.
Following the webinar, organizers will post the video to Essentia Health's Facebook and YouTube pages.
