Episode 17- Covid-19 Vaccine: What You Need To Know PODCAST

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-aezzk-f9b2ad

This episode is a recording of a Covid-19 Vaccine education webinar hosted by Special Olympics Kentucky on February 3, 2021. They had friend of the podcast Dr. Priya Chandan and Dr. Corrie Harris from Norton Children’s hospital. In this session these Louisville doctors talk all things vaccine. Self advocates from SOKY and DSL and parents submitted questions beforehand and they were able to answer most all of the questions posed. This will most likely be a regular webinar with updates as the medical and public health experts learn more.
