Last Call for May 10: Vaccination Awareness: Knowledge-at-Noon Series

Submitted by Elaine Johannes

Across most of Kansas, access to COVID-19 vaccination continues to increase, but there are pockets where Kansans may not know where to go for their vaccination or they might be a bit hesitant to do so. Join members of the KSRE EXCITE - Vaccinate with Confidence task force for a Knowledge at Noon: Vaccination Awareness series on May 10, May 24 and June 7 (12-1 p.m. CDT). Each noon-time session will feature information to share with clients and stakeholders, and will include time for discussion about vaccination in Kansas. The focus for each session is below with registration information. Once registered, zoom meeting details will be provided.

In the meantime, reputable vaccination resources, which have been vetted by the KSRE EXCITE task force, are available at KSRE EXCITE vaccination resources April 2021.

Task Force members are:
