How Can You Help?
Even as more people are vaccinated, our community will remain vulnerable until at least 70% of our population receives the vaccine. Local Health Departments continue to coordinate with local healthcare partners to ensure vaccine is distributed as quickly as possible to all who are interested.
You can help our community reach our goal by doing the following:
Spread the word that the vaccine is key to getting back to normal
Encouraging friends, family and coworkers to sign up for vaccine
If people have questions about the vaccine, encourage them to seek information from reputable sources such as the Health Department, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local healthcare organizations
