Get the Facts on COVID-19 Vaccines
You are invited to the April 28th virtual event Get the Facts: COVID-19 Vaccine Basics for Everyone. This free, one-hour event will start at Noon CDT.
American Indian/Alaska Natives have died or been hospitalized due to COVID-19 at a higher rate than Hispanic, Black, Asian, and white populations, according to CDC data. The COVID-19 vaccines are one tool to help protect yourself and your community.
Many people still have questions or concerns about the vaccines. That’s why the Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Epidemiology Center (GLITEC) is hosting this event to help you get your questions answered and empower you to make an informed decision.
This event will:
- Share information about the COVID-19 vaccines
- Explain why these vaccines are important
- Answer questions from the community
“All are welcome at this event,” said Dr. German Gonzalez, GLITEC director and medical epidemiologist. “The more everyone knows about the vaccines and other ways to reduce the risk of COVID-19, the better we can all work together to stay safe from COVID-19 and put an end to the pandemic.”
