Free webinar Friday on coronavirus vaccines

Dr. Adam Brady, infectious disease specialist and chair of the Samaritan coronavirus task force, will offer a free webinar on the latest on coronavirus vaccines at noon Friday, April 9.

More and more people in the state of Oregon are becoming eligible for the coronavirus vaccine, as we approach May 1, when everyone over the age of 16 in Oregon is slated to be eligible for vaccination.

Meanwhile, Samaritan Health is working with county public health partners, under the direction of the OHA, to help administer vaccines in our region as quickly, efficiently and equitably as possible.

In the webinar, Dr. Brady will discuss:

  • The vaccines currently available.
  • Potential side effects and why most people do not need to worry about them.
  • Common concerns about the vaccines.
  • Coronavirus variants.
  • What you can safely do once you have been vaccinated.
  • And more.

There will also be time for questions and answers.
