The second half of the webinar will feature a Q&A. Attendees can ask vaccine-related questions via the “Q&A” function in Zoom. Essentia Health say they will do their best to answer as many questions as time allows. Following the webinar, they will post the video to their Facebook and YouTube pages.

Those with questions or concerns about the vaccine as it relates to their personal health condition are urged to contact their primary care provider. Similarly, anyone with a history of severe allergic reactions to vaccines or medications are advised to contact their primary care provider.
