We All Have A Responsibility To Safeguard Ourselves And Others In The Pandemic
Even with the hope and progress of the COVID 19 vaccine, public health experts and other policy makers are warning that this will be a cruel season. We encourage you to learn the facts, communicate with your health care professionals and seek vaccination as soon as you become eligible. You should also encourage others get vaccinated as soon as they are able. To ensure herd immunity and to “get back to some semblance of normal” it will take between 70 and 90 % of the population to be vaccinated.
You should also continue to wear masks, wash hands, maintain social distance and follow all public health recommendations. All of us have a responsibility to safeguard ourselves and each other.
