Our Shot to End COVID

#OurShotToEndCOVID

This is Our Shot to End COVID, so let’s make it count!

Vaccines are now readily available for most Americans age 12 and older, and it’s important to recognize that vaccination is one of the primary weapons we have for ending the deadly pandemic. We’re not medical experts, but we believe in doing whatever it takes to move on from the COVID era.

While the importance of vaccines can’t be overstated, it’s not just about shots-in-arms. Medical experts and scientists are encouraging us to continue practicing safety measures like wearing masks, staying at least six feet away from others, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and washing our hands often. As much as we are all eager to get back into the swing of our normal lives, let’s not let our guard down now. These efforts, and others like them, will ensure we make the most of Our Shot to End COVID.

"This vaccine represents our greatest chance to overcome this pandemic and get back to our lives. It's a vaccine that has been tested rigorously and evaluated by independent scientists and found to be safe and effective."
Dr. Vivek Murthy, (U.S. Surgeon General)

Vaccines

The COVID-19 vaccine is the best tool we currently have for preventing the virus. If you have not been vaccinated, we encourage you to do so—to protect yourself, your family and the community. While appointments are encouraged, many vaccination sites are now offering convenient walk-in options, making it even easier to get vaccinated. See the bottom of this page for information about mobile vaccine sites hosted at Southern communities, and federal and state vaccine resources.

If you have been vaccinated, please read the CDC’s Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People.

Masks

As more of the population becomes vaccinated, authorities and businesses are loosening their mask usage guidelines. This is encouraging, but let’s not discount the important precautions that were put in place to help control the spread of the virus. Stay informed and follow the current guidelines for mask usage as they continue to evolve and recognize that everyone has their own idea of what feels safe to them. Post-pandemic life will require us all to be patient and tolerant, as our society eases back into its public routines.

Social Distancing

As communities are reopening and people are in public more often, continuing to practice pandemic precautions will work in synergy with the COVID-19 vaccination to end the pandemic. Stay aware of the changing recommendations regarding social distancing, capacity limits and gathering in groups. Current guidance allows fully vaccinated individuals to resume activities they participated in prior to the pandemic, but we need to recognize that not everyone has been vaccinated yet and be respectful.

Washing Hands

Washing your hands is easy, and it’s one of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of germs. Clean hands can stop germs from spreading from one person to another and throughout an entire community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends you follow these five steps to wash your hands the right way.

  • Wet your hands with clean, running water and apply soap.
  • Lather the front and the back of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  • Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds.
  • Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  • Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.

Use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available.
