NEWS ALERT: DID YOU GET YOUR COVID-19 VACCINE?
Did You Get Your COVID-19 VACCINE?
Approximately three weeks ago President Joseph R. Biden launched an ambitious plan to have 70% of adults get the first shot of the COVID-19 vaccination by July 4th. As of right now the goal is almost in reach with 65% of adults are partially vaccinated from the COVID-19 Virus.
President Biden has stated that every American has a major role to play to ensure each of us combats this deadly virus. America is almost there to the 70% mark, but it cannot be done without everyone's help. If you know someone who has not been vaccinated ask him or her to get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus. Please tell him or her that it is everyone's civic, patriotic and moral duty to protect themselves & others against this health threat to America and the world. It is time to step up and get vaccinated. Please get your shot before it is too late.
Most vaccination clinics are now walk-ins and appointments are not necessary anymore. Plus, your favorite supermarket and drug store are now offering the COVID-19 vaccine. If everyone tries to meet this goal of 70% then America will have a grand and festive July 4th holiday celebrating not only our nation's 245th birthday but also our independence from the COVID-19 virus. Please get vaccinated.
For more information about the COVID-19 Vaccine and how to get it please see the following websites:
Enjoy the videos and please get your COVID-19 Vaccine.
