COVID Vaccination Information

 

Be safe, get vaccinated!

 

The most important step you can take for your safety and for the safety of everyone, right after wearing a mask and social distancing, is to get a COVID vaccination as soon as it is available for you.

We want every person in our community to get vaccinated.

Disclaimer: The information on this page, and well, pretty much the whole website is not meant to take the place of actual medical advice from a doctor, or even a veterinarian. We are not doctors and never said we were. We are not even doctor adjacent. Although there was that time when Aunt Minnie twisted her knee doing the watusi at Uncle Moe's 90th birthday party and we told her to sit down and ice it, but would she listen, no, of course not, that's just the way she is, and then for weeks she complained about her lumbago acting up, and even though we tried to tell her that lumbago isn't even a real thing she made us search high and low for Dr. Moishe's Medicinal Chopped Liver Elixir which we could not find. She blamed us for the swelling and pain and we told her, "Hey, we're not doctors." So there. But seriously, get a vaccine. Be safe.
