Webinar to discuss booster shots
The Maui News
AARP Hawaii will host a free webinar for kupuna on the COVID-19 vaccine booster at noon on Oct. 15.
Dr. Aida Wen, associate professor of geriatric medicine at the John A. Burns School of Medicine at the University of Hawaii, and C.J. Johnson, outreach specialist with the state Department of Health, will speak at the webinar.
“We think it’s critical that kupuna get information from reliable sources about COVID-19, the vaccine booster shots, new variants and what the state is doing to make booster shots available for those eligible,” AARP Hawaii State Director Keali’i Lopez said in a news release Tuesday.
