LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - CHI Health wants people to make informed decisions on the COVID-19 vaccine. For the entire month of August, CHI Health will answer vaccine questions, free of charge, seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

A CHI Health representative said there’s real value in a one-on-one conversation with a health care provider. People in Nebraska and southwest Iowa, hesitant about the vaccine, can speak with the experts who can address their specific concerns.

The number, 402-717-1255, will be staffed by licensed primary care providers. The call is free and the conversations are confidential. Consumers interested in getting the vaccine will be directed to the nearest site.

“As the school year inches closer and we continue to pursue a sense of normalcy, CHI Health wants the community to feel informed, safe and comfortable getting the COVID-19 vaccine. We want to make sure everyone has access to information to make the decision that’s best for them -- It’s part of our commitment to the communities we serve and our mission to improve the health of others,” said Jeanette Wojtalewicz, Interim CEO, CHI Health.
