ANNA – While the Illinois Department of Public Health recently reported that more than 62% of the Illinois adults have already received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, hesitancy among residents to get vaccinated continues to be a primary concern in the healthcare community.
The Southern Seven Health Department announced a Community COVID-19 Virtual Town Hall May 25 from 6 to 7 p.m. Those who attend the virtual event will have the opportunity to ask questions about COVID-19 and the vaccines.
Natalie Sawyer, Southern Seven’s Health Education Director, said the main goal of the town hall is “to have a down-to-earth conversation with residents in our region.”
“We accept that getting vaccinated is a personal choice,” Sawyer said. “However, it remains all of our responsibility to educate and spread awareness when it comes to public health concerns.”
To join the conversation, visit the link at www.southern7.org or on their Facebook page.
