People are invited to join Dr. Adam Brady, infectious disease specialist and chair of the Samaritan coronavirus task force, to learn the latest on coronavirus vaccines.

Brady will speak during a live webinar at noon on Friday, April 9.

More and more people in Oregon are becoming eligible for the coronavirus vaccine — May 1 is when everyone over the age of 16 in the state is slated to be eligible for vaccination.

Meanwhile, Samaritan is working with county public health partners, under the direction of the Oregon Health Authority, to help administer vaccines in the region as quickly, efficiently and equitably as possible.

In the webinar, Brady will discuss:

• The vaccines currently available.

• Potential side effects and why most people do not need to worry about them.

• Common concerns about the vaccines.

• Coronavirus variants.

• What you can safely do once you have been vaccinated.

There will also be time for questions and answers.

People can register for this webinar at samhealth.org/BeHealthy. Registrants will receive a confirmation email with details on how to access the event.
