Penn State’s University Health Services (UHS) will host a joint Q&A session with Vaccinate America this week to “raise and promote public health awareness.”

The hour-long event, “Vaxx Faxx,” is set to take place on Wednesday, March 30 at 6 p.m. Those interested in attending can head to the Freeman Auditorium in the HUB or join via Zoom.

Attendees are encouraged to submit questions about vaccines, mental health, health disparities, case management, and more through an online form.
