Partnerships with artists and other public figures can be an effective way to increase confidence in COVID-19 vaccines and increase vaccination rates. CDC’s new toolkits can help your public health organization engage with local artists to promote COVID-19 vaccination.

“Local artists can play an important role in delivering fact-based information and serving as trusted messengers within their communities to increase confidence in vaccines,” says Dr. Peggy Honein, who helps lead CDC’s COVID-19 response.

DeKalb Pediatric Center in Decatur, GA, applied to be a COVID-19 vaccination site as soon as they could. They began vaccinating parents, teens, and local community members in March even though most of their patients weren’t yet eligible. In the first week, they vaccinated more than 1,000 people!

They then worked with a local high school to host a vaccination day, with the entire staff giving 650 shots. DeKalb Pediatric Center expanded their outreach to other community members. When vaccine eligibility was extended to those 12 years and older, they vaccinated more than 1,300 adolescents in less than a week.

In 8 weeks, Dekalb Pediatric Center vaccinated more than 6,400 people from ages 12 to 96. They attribute their success to partnerships across their community.

“Those of us who are pediatricians need to incorporate giving COVID vaccine into our regular everyday work,” says Dr. Jane Wilkov, the practice’s founder.

“The positive effect we can have in restoring a sense of normalcy to our kids is well worth the effort to administer the vaccine.”

08/31/2021

It’s possible for you to catch the virus that causes COVID-19 from someone else between your 1st and 2nd COVID-19 vaccine doses in a two-dose series. You should still receive your second shot if you get a vaccine that requires two doses. Before getting your second shot, make sure:
• You have recovered from your illness and no longer have symptoms of COVID-19.
• At least 10 days have passed since your symptoms first appeared.
• You’ve had no fever for at least 24 hours without using fever-reducing medication.

It’s OK if you have to wait past the date when you were scheduled to get your second shot. Get it as close as possible to the scheduled date.

There are ways to #PrepYourHealth that have nothing to do with collecting emergency supplies. It's also important to learn practical skills, such as how to use a generator safely during a power outage:
☑ Operate generators outside and in a dry area.
☑ Place generators at least 20 ft. from any window, door, or vent.
☑ Test the batteries in your carbon monoxide (CO) detectors.

When are you going to allow Veterans to be buried with Veteran honors (color guard, taps, carriage ride to grave site)? My Korean War veteran father died last week, and is awaiting burial due to your absurd restrictions.

You must start to question the media due to the weapon Russia and China are deploying all over the world. The enemies are not invisible. They are Russia, China, North Korea and some Middle Eastern governments. The Russian and Chinese armies are in the United States Deploying these weapons. Not all Russians and not all Chinese who live here are part of this deployment obviously. There are even Americans who have joined the Russian army to help them deploy these weapons. There were two Americans who deployed this weapon on me in Maine: Martin Thompson, and Kevin Thompson. When I moved to Brooklyn, NY they went in the apartment above and next to mine with asking two other American operatives who were pro Putin to join them in this weapons deployment: Zack Howard 281 23rd St. Apt. 3 BKNY 11215, and Tom Blazsek apt. next door to me in the basement. The Thompsons even followed me to Washington DC on several occasions when I tried to contact Intelligence about these weapons. The weapon is the most dangerous weapon ever created because it subjects people to the will of an operative's wireless device by sending signals that an infected person will believe to be his own thoughts. They can also horrifically torture you with this device which is what happened to me. There is no covid 19 virus. There is only an emf powered microchip weapons deployment which causes hospitalizations and death. The gas which helps the body not reject foreign particles in the blood stream simulates pneumonia in some people and infecting people causes fevers in some people. Russia and China governments created disinformation by blaming this on a global pandemic and not a global attack on free nations. Don't test for covid 19 or give blood. Testing and giving blood are ways the Russian and Chinese government have been deploying this weapon. To test for tainted testing equipment subject testing equipment to an electromagnetic field for a few hours and you should see a moving particle which has reacted to the field. This would prove that the tests are deploying a biological weapon which is not a virus. The only way to find out if the bio weapon has infected you is to subject a blood sample to an electromagnetic field for a few hours and look for a moving particle under a microscope. See davestilman8 instagram. Please note first responders are primary targets of a weapon that enables mind control and infiltration into scientific and medical communities is so pervasive it will be hard to test for these microchips at traditional hospitals and laboratories. davestilman8 instagram
My sister-in-law works in a nursing home. She survived SARs, barely. Now she is late 60's still working in the nursing home, 29 people in the nursing home have COVID-19, she hasn't caught it, only one person died (better medical care in Cali??), but I am wondering if because she had SARs, that is why she hasn't caught COVID-19
