Young people who have experienced psychosis and their families may have unanswered questions about the COVID-19 vaccine. With walk-in vaccine appointments now available across Massachusetts, this panel of early psychosis peer specialists and local vaccine experts are here to share their experiences. Join us for a presentation and open conversation on the COVID-19 vaccine, equity, and mental health. Is there a topic you want to know more about? Questions can be submitted in advance using this form: https://forms.gle/tWTZMdDdNkoeMrRa6. You can read more at www.mapnet.online/covid19-vaccine.
