Governor Kate Brown receives a booster shot of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine at Salem Health Edgewater Clinic in Salem on Tuesday, Oct. 26, 2021.
SALEM – Oregonians can ask government officials directly about booster shots and the omicron variant of the coronavirus in a midday Facebook event on Thursday, Dec. 23.
This is the chance for residents instead of the press to question a top state official about these matters.
The live Q&A is scheduled to start at 12:30 p.m. Thursday and go about a half hour. Access to the session is online at this link. A recording of the session will be available later on Youtube.
The moderator will be Dr. Paul Cieslak, public health physician in the Public Health Division of the Oregon Health Authority.
Gov. Kate Brown last week announced that a forecast by Oregon Health & Science University projected a swarm of omicron cases in Oregon that could hospitalize hundreds of Oregonians through January. She and other public health authorities are urging Oregonians to get booster shots, which they say can minimize the impacts of getting the omicron variant.
