Apollo COVID-19 Vaccination Webinar
Feb. 24, 2021

With the COVID-19 vaccine rolling out across the country, we’re looking forward to brighter days ahead. And as we continue to learn more about the vaccine and its rollout, we’re committed to making sure the entire Apollo Family and our community has the most up-to-date health and safety information possible. In this webinar, recorded on February 24th, a panelist of prominent doctors from the National Medical Association (NMA) addressed some of the most frequently asked questions about the COVID-19 vaccine and its distribution process.
