Virginia Garcia hosts community listening sessions around COVID-19 vaccine - 02/17/21

HILLSBORO – Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center is partnering with other community organizations in Washington and Yamhill counties to host community-wide listening sessions focused on the hesitancy that exists around the COVID-19 vaccine.

Sessions will be held separately in Spanish and English and are open to anyone in the community.

“Our goal with these sessions is to hear the concerns that our communities have around the vaccine,” said Virginia Garcia CEO Gil Muñoz. “We want to provide information and resources that will be helpful in the decision-making process. By hosting these listening sessions, we are hoping to get a better idea of the fears that may exist and help to remove any barriers they may have to getting the vaccine.”

The details for each session are below:

Spanish-only Listening Session
Thursday, February 18, 2021
6pm - 7pm
Available via Zoom, Facebook Live and telephone

English-only Listening Session
Tuesday, February 23, 2021
6pm - 7pm
Available via Zoom, Facebook Live and telephone

A website had been created with all meeting details:

It is requested that the press do not attend the community listening sessions. Results of the sessions will be made available upon request. Community “Ask an Expert” Q&A sessions will be scheduled following each session and will be open to the press as well as the community at large. Details on that will follow.

Virginia Garcia is grateful to the community organizations partnering in the promotion of these events:

APANO Adelante Mujeres Bienestar Centro Cultural
Community Action Latino Network Lifeworks Living Islands
McMinnville Library Unidos United Way Yamhill Community Care


Fliers promoting the event are included with this advisory. Please feel free to use to promote the sessions.
