I know some individuals may be hesitant or concerned about being vaccinated and others may have seen misleading or confusing information on social media. But, making a well informed personal decision to receive the COVID-19 vaccine is very important.
I encourage everyone to receive the vaccine when it becomes available to you. Please utilize the information resources below to learn about the vaccines and their development.
