Thursday’s town hall to present school vaccination protocols in person | Local News
POTTSTOWN – Most parents know that their children need to be immunized regularly in order to attend school.
But with measures to control the spread of the COVID-19 virus increasingly politicized – with hesitation and misinformation about the vaccine, and pushback against mask warrants – preparing to return to school in person has rarely been more difficult.
In an effort to provide accurate information on what will be required of children returning to Pottstown schools in August, the Tri-County Health Council has set up a free online Zoom “Town Hall” scheduled for Thursday from 7 to 8 p.m. .
Registration is required for those wishing to submit questions and can be done online at this link: https://us06web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ZQoA3whzS2yIwdNn42dIhw
The Town Hall will also be broadcast in real time on the Tri-County Community Network Facebook page, and a recording of the entire town hall will be available on this webpage after the event concludes.
Former Pottstown Schools Superintendent Jeff Sparagana will host the forum, which will consist of a panel of three experts.
• Sarah Spengler, pediatric nurse practitioner at Community Health and Dental Care, a federally licensed health center in Pottstown.
• Kimberly Perry-Malloy, pediatric nurse for 23 years and currently Head Nurse for the Pottstown School District.
• Kathleen Seeley, Senior Director of Early Childhood Education at the YWCA TriCounty Area Early Childhood Education Center.
The TriCounty Health Council is made up of leaders and staff from community health and dental care, Creative Health Services, Pottstown Hospital-Tower Health, TriCounty Community Network, and the Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation.
