Getting immunized against COVID-19 will keep most people from getting sick. Even in a rare case where one does catch the virus, a vaccine will likely prevent you from becoming seriously ill.
Protecting yourself also protects the people around you, like those at increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19 or those who can’t get vaccinated — like infants, children or people with weakened immune systems from things like chemotherapy for cancer. #ProtectAgainstCOVID19Vaccinate #COVID19 #SleevesUpForKids #BCDI4Kids

07/09/2021

How many people need to get a #COVID19 vaccine for population immunity? When enough people in a community are protected from getting a disease – because they’ve already had the disease or they’ve been vaccinated – that makes it harder for the disease to spread from person to person. This is known as population immunity, and it even protects those who cannot be vaccinated, like newborns. While experts don’t yet know what percentage of people would need to get vaccinated to achieve population immunity, vaccination is a safer way to build protection than getting sick with COVID-19.

General information

This year, as are many other organizations, we are challenged to do more with less. What is unique to BCDI-Milwaukee is that our Board and members are comprised entirely of volunteers. This means that there are many people who are truly committed – we walk the talk. Because of our long history of integrity and reputation in Milwaukee and nationally, our Affiliate has been selected to participate in a number of pilot (grant) projects that will enhance the quality of life of children and their families. It is a privilege to be recognized and regarded. And we continue to develop partnerships along the way to help us fulfill our mission.
