As our nation continues to see new COVID-19 infections and the Delta Variant has caused a dangerous situation for children and the unvaccinated, it is important to remember that one of the easiest ways to stop the spread is to receive the COVID vaccination.
The vaccine has proven safe and effective at preventing or minimizing COVID-19 infection. It is a free vaccine that is available throughout many mass vaccination sites in our region. It has never been easier to receive an immunization that could literally mean the difference between life and death.
Sadly, there is a wealth of misinformation about the vaccine everywhere, which leads to vaccine hesitancy. It’s important to know the difference between what is fact and what is fiction. To save lives, we need to kill misinformation, and in the below blog post, David Sandman, Ph.D., President and CEO of the New York State Health Foundation, tells us the truth about vaccines and how we can all help stop the spread.
