COVID-19 Vaccine Town Halls for At-Risk Populations to Address Vaccine Hesitancy

The Ohio Department of Health and the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services have scheduled a series of COVID-19 Vaccine Town Halls with medical experts, community leaders, and public health professionals to address common concerns and questions among specific populations. As Ohio continues to roll out the COVID-19 vaccine, sharing accurate, reliable information with at-risk populations to help reduce vaccine hesitancy remains a high priority.

We are asking for your help by sharing this information with your members and encouraging them to promote these Town Halls with their patients/stakeholders.

A toolkit is available for download to help promote the Town Halls. In addition, a graphics package of web banners, fliers, social media graphics, and web advertisements is linked within the toolkit and is accessible here.

The Town Hall schedule for at-risk populations is as follows:

• Monday, February 22, 6:30 p.m. – African American Ohioans
• Tuesday, Feb. 23, 6:30 p.m. – Hispanic/Latino Ohioans
• Monday, March 1, 6:30 p.m. – Asian American and Pacific Islander Ohioans
• Tuesday, March 2, 6:30 p.m. – Rural Ohioans
