The COVID-19 pandemic is emotionally challenging for everybody. It’s been a difficult year, separated from our extended families and friends, the activities that bring us joy and relaxation, and even unable to meet with co-workers. Happily, approved and safe COVID-19 vaccines are finally offering a way out of this worldwide crisis. Widespread vaccination is our eventual path back to normalcy and control over our own lives. A vaccine isn’t just a shot in the arm – it’s a little dose of hope.
The decision to get vaccinated is a personal choice, one with potential implications for the health and safety of people around you as well. We will continue to share vaccine information and make vaccinations available to members who want them. We encourage everybody who is eligible for, and can tolerate the vaccine, to be vaccinated at the earliest opportunity.
If you have not been vaccinated yet, we look forward to seeing you at a vaccination clinic soon! Whether vaccinated or not, all community members are asked to continue to observe pandemic protocols to help keep the community safe.
- Wear a mask outside your home.
- Wash your hands frequently.
- Watch your distance and stay 2 meters away from people you don’t live with.
