As part of Ohio’s continuing efforts to ensure equity in Ohio’s vaccination program, the Ohio Department of Health is holding virtual town halls focused on specific minority communities. These virtual meetings will involve local medical professionals and community leaders who will guide these conversations to discuss the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The meetings are intended to jumpstart conversations and give local leaders and attendees the tools they need to better inform members of their communities about vaccine facts, enhance access to trusted resources, and drive conversations in their own communities about why vaccinations are important.
The town halls will be streamed on Facebook and YouTube. More details are available online.
