Concerned about the COVID vaccine? Talk to a doc
If you want more information about the safety, side effects and long-term consequences of the COVID-19 vaccines, Asante physicians have offered to speak with employees personally to answer questions about the vaccine.
Providers from each campus are available to share their clinical insights in a safe and nonjudgmental environment. Research has shown than health care providers are the most trusted source of reliable information about the vaccine.
Some of the providers offering their time work in emergency medicine or have temporarily supported intensive care units and have seen first-hand the devastating effects of SARS-CoV-2.
“We’ve saved lives together, we’ve lost lives together,” said Somnath Ghosh, MD, an intensivist and vice president of Medical Affairs at ARRMC. “I would like to believe our staff has trust in us.”
To schedule time with one of the providers listed, text them on Halo. If you don’t have access to the secure app, submit a request through myTech.
