Dr. Gregory Grant from SSM Health St. Anthony Hospital-Shawnee recently spoke to local Kiwanis Club members about the scientific breakdown of COVID-19. He stressed the importance of getting vaccinated.

“He was very informative on how the body naturally fights off viruses and how the vaccine gives the body an additional boost to fight COVID-19,” Kiwanis Club Program Chair John Winterringer said.
