COVID-19: Leo’s Letter: The Coronavirus Vaccine Is Coming. Our Community Must Get It.

During my weekly webinar, I shared a piece from the Boston Globe’s Hanna Krueger, who described the disillusionment of “many infectious disease experts.” Their emotions reflect frustration with so much of the public who have ignored warnings or guidelines.

Over the next several months, we’ll have the opportunity to take the vaccine so the spread of this pandemic can decrease. Experts say a minimum of 75% of the population needs to be vaccinated in order for there to be adequate resistance to the spread of COVID-19 within our population.

We know that our constituents are at particular risk due to this virus. Thus, we hope you will join us in encouraging everyone to get the vaccine as it becomes available throughout 2021. This is one thing we all can do to advance the health of our loved ones and friends.

Stay tuned for more facts about the virus, its safety and the protection it offers!
