In his presentation, Dr. Howie will discuss types of vaccines, how they work, effectiveness, and possible side effects. He will also share locations to get the vaccine and talk about the supply issues that may impact York County. Time for questions will be available. Dr. Howie is the city of York’s medical director and chief health strategist. He is also executive director of the York Opioid Collaborative.
