Let's Talk - Watch the Discussion on Youtube

As the new school year approaches, we know that many Buncombe parents share common questions and concerns about their student(s) safety during in-person instruction. To address your questions, Buncombe County Health and Human Services hosted Let’s Talk- Back to School Immunizations. During this virtual, parent-led event, local experts explain what it will take for our schools to stay open and our students to stay in their classrooms.

Many important questions were addressed, including:

  • What do we know about vaccination rates historically in Buncombe County and how did the COVID-19 pandemic impact them?
  • What can we do to improve vaccination rates in Buncombe County?
  • What steps have schools taken to stay open and keep students safe during in-person instruction?

For answers to these questions and more, watch the recording below.
