JOIN THE CONVERSATION!
As Montgomery County continues to roll out COVID-19 vaccine clinics, local leaders are concerned about the lack of trust and resistance to the vaccine across Black communities even though they are three times more likely to die from the virus, due to disparities in healthcare and certain underlying health conditions.
Join the Montgomery County Commissioners, the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium and other area medical, science, faith and community leaders in an interactive virtual town hall entitled: Facts Not Fear Virtual Town Hall: COVID-19 Vaccines and the Black Community. They will share the latest COVID-19 vaccination research, how to stop the spread of the virus, vaccine availability and distribution, and answer your questions and concerns.
Learn more about how you can fight to protect yourself and your community from the devastating effects of COVID-19, by registering for this FREE webinar being held on January 21 at 7 p.m., via Zoom.
