Spread the love

In partnership with Foundation for Black Communities and the Edmonton Community Foundation, LCCMedia Foundation and Ladiescorner.ca are proud to present our first Information Session on vaccines tonight at 6pm MST. The workshop is titled Vaccines and you. It will be presented by Dr. Jennifer Njenga from the Canada Homecare Group.

 

Why do you need to join the Information Evening?

We present an opportunity to get all your questions answered.  Knowledge is the new money. Get empowered. Get armed by hearing from people in your community about what Covid 19 is and the different types of vaccines that there are.

Will the vaccine give you the options you need? Will the vaccine turn you into a zombie? Will the vaccine make you infertile? Will the vaccines affect your sex life? Will the vaccines make you infertile? So many questions to be answered.

Join the conversation at 6pm MST. Knowledge is the new money!
