LSPA Vaccine Distribution Town Hall

THURSDAY, JANUARY 14, 2021
9:00 AM — 10:15 AM

ABOUT

The Vaccine Distribution Town Hall is a virtual program what will discuss and educate employers and civic leaders on how the vaccine distribution process will work in Pennsylvania and provide a forum for them to ask questions about it.

We all want to return to some sense of normal work/life activity as soon as possible. To do that safely and efficiently, however, will require a clear message on the process by which vaccines will be available to Pennsylvanians. Equally as important is an opportunity for participants to ask questions about distribution, safety, and efficacy of the vaccines.
