(Corvallis, Ore. – March 26, 2021) Join Adam Brady, MD, infectious disease specialist and chair of Samaritan Health Services’ coronavirus task force, to learn the latest on coronavirus vaccines at an online webinar Friday, April 2, beginning at noon.
More and more people in the state of Oregon are becoming eligible for the coronavirus vaccine, as we approach May 1, when everyone over the age of 16 in Oregon is slated to be eligible for vaccination.

In the webinar, Dr. Brady will discuss:
Vaccines that are currently available.
Potential side effects and why most people do not need to worry about them.
Common concerns about the vaccines.
What you can safely do once you have been vaccinated.
