What You Can Do to Help
Vaccination is one of the most important tools to end the COVID-19 pandemic. There are now three vaccines approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) under Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) for COVID-19. Meaning more people can be vaccinated as there is more vaccine available. This, along with recent eligibility updates allowing all those 16 and over to receive the vaccine, is our light at the end the end of the tunnel!
Practice the Three W's: Wear a mask, watch distance and wash hands
These vaccines are effective but are not 100 percent. We need at least 70 percent of the population to be immune before there is enough herd immunity to hopefully put this pandemic to rest. Cases, hospitalizations and deaths are decreasing. This is excellent news but we need to keep going strong and keep up on masking, social distancing and washing our hands to prevent spread of this virus and stop this pandemic. We can do this together!
