Date/Time: 04/06/2021 at 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

HealthierHere knows that many of our community members and frontline staff at local CBOs and clinical organizations have unanswered questions about whether or not the COVID-19 vaccine is right for them, and if it is- how to navigate a confusing and stressful system. The vaccine landscape is changing quickly, and not all community members have had the opportunity to participate in town halls or other information sharing sessions to get their questions answered. On Tuesday, April 6th from 3 – 4:30pm HealthierHere will host an informal Q&A webinar to help address this need.
We will have a diverse panel of local leaders representing community-based and clinical organizations who can speak to the most common questions and concerns they are hearing from their communities, as well as answer questions from the audience. Topics will include the differences between the three approved vaccines, how the COVID-19 vaccine differs from the flu shot and other common vaccines, the benefits of getting vaccinated, side effects and potential downsides, which groups were represented in the clinical trials, how to access the vaccine when it’s your ‘phase,’ and more. Panelists will also be able to provide personal testimony about their own experiences with the vaccine.
This webinar is ideal for those who are still deciding whether the COVID-19 vaccine is right for them, particularly frontline staff at CBOs and clinics as well as community members served by HealthierHere’s community and clinical partners. We encourage HealthierHere partners to share information about this webinar with your community members, as appropriate.
When: Tuesday, April 6th 3 – 4:30pm
- Ahmed Ali, Executive Director, Somali Health Board
- Esther Lucero, Chief Executive Officer, Seattle Indian Health Board
- Marguerite Ro, Chief of Assessment, Policy Development, and Evaluation / Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention at Public Health- Seattle & King County
