Ohio’s COVID-19 Vaccine Town Hall for African American Ohioans will be held Feb. 22

Whether it is due to past negative experiences with the healthcare system, doubt about COVID-19 vaccines, or lack of access to care, African American Ohioans need access to accurate, reliable information about the vaccines. To help meet this need, Ohio is addressing health inequities and separating facts from myths in upcoming COVID-19 Vaccine Town Halls.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of dangerous myths out there about COVID-19 vaccines. You might hear these myths on social media, at work, or from friends or family. No matter where you hear them, they can cause doubt or skepticism, leaving you looking for answers. The truth is that COVID-19 vaccines are safe, effective, and rigorously tested. The upcoming Town Halls give you answers and access to trustworthy information about COVID-19 vaccines.

Mark your calendar for Monday, Feb.22, at 6:30 p.m. During this one-hour Town Hall, available live and on-demand after the event, you’ll hear from medical experts, community leaders, and public health professionals.
