Getting through this together

It’s been said, “it takes a village to raise a child.” It also takes a village to stamp out COVID-19. Everyone who chooses to get vaccinated does it for a reason—to protect their family, to protect their children, to be less anxious, visit their parents, or get back to activities like seeing friends, resuming work, or returning to school, in addition to the importance of protecting oneself from the potential serious health impacts of COVID-19.

After deciding to get vaccinated, your friends, family and neighbors may need assistance in obtaining the vaccine—and that’s where you can help!
