COVID-19 vaccine: It’s our turn to roll up our sleeves and get vaccinated!
It’s hard to imagine a time when we didn’t know COVID-19 existed. The impact of COVID-19 on our lives, our activities, and our freedom has affected us all. The responsibility is ours, as a community, to help stop this virus.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective in preventing severe illness from COVID-19, and people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 may start to do some things they had stopped doing because of the pandemic.
It takes everyone.
We all need to step up to beat COVID-19. We ask you to join us in protecting yourself, your family and friends, and our community by getting vaccinated.
Getting vaccinated adds an important layer of protection for you, your family, and loved ones. Here are some things you should know about the COVID-19 vaccine:
All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are very effective at preventing the disease.
The most common side effects are pain in the arm where you got the shot, feeling tired, headache, body aches, chills, and fever.
Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools we have available—wearing masks, social distancing, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, washing your hands frequently, staying home when ill, and getting vaccinated.
We want everyone in our community to be safe and get back the moments we’ve missed with our families, friends and neighbors.
We all play a part in this effort, and you are key. Please sign up to get your COVID-19 vaccination at:
Murray County Medical Center: on Wednesdays, call for appointment 507-836-6111 (Pfizer)
