COVID-19 Town Hall

As a leading voice for providers and an advocate for strengthening public health throughout Tennessee, VHAN has been working daily to support your organization through the COVID-19 pandemic. As we near a more hopeful stage—the vaccination phase—VHAN is continuing to provide educational resources and opportunities for our member organizations and their patients on the COVID-19 vaccines.

Join us for a virtual town hall on Thursday, Dec. 17 at 12 p.m. CST when Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) coronavirus vaccine research experts will share the latest safety and efficacy data on the COVID-19 vaccines. The panel will share key data points from the vaccine trials and provide further insight into the important role providers like you will play in this vaccination phase. The town hall will also include an opportunity for you to ask questions of the panelists.
