CMC to offer forum on vaccines

If you are one of many with questions you’d like answered before deciding whether to get vaccinated against the SARS Cov-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, take note: you may get your questions answered at an upcoming forum on the topic hosted by Coulee Medical Center on Zoom.

Dr. Jennifer Knox, a family practice physician at CMC, will present information and discuss with anyone attending what’s true and known about the disease and the vaccines being used to fight its spread worldwide.

Knox met the hospital’s staff Monday to present the same information in a detailed way. The presentation lasted about an hour and dug into the specifics of how the vaccines work, the research that went into their development, the known risks both of taking a vaccine and of not taking one, and more.

A similar community-wide Zoom meeting is in planning. Details will be announced.
