And finally, get your COVID-19 immunization. This is a safe and effective vaccine that will help keep you or your loved ones out of the hospital. Because children cannot be vaccinated, it is really important for adults to get vaccinated in order to protect our children. I am got my vaccine and I want you to as well.
Together we can beat this virus. We wish you and your loved ones wellness and good health.
