BRIDGETON, N.J. — The rollout of the COVID-19 vaccine has prompted many conversations about vaccination and its safety and efficiency. To answer some of these questions, Inspira Health will host a virtual town hall on January 14.
Topics of discussion will include the COVID-19 vaccine, updated statistics from the CDC, resources and testing options, and visitor guidelines at Inspira Medical Centers.
The town hall meeting will also feature a live Q&A session. Questions may be submitted in advance to Events@IHN.org by January 13, or they can be asked during the live session.
The event is open to anyone who registers in advance over Zoom. You can register for the event here.

As of yesterday, more than 450,000 people signed up to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in New Jersey through the state’s official website.
