Dear Spencer Township Residents,
Across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic is having devastating effects. Here in Spencer Township we have felt the pain and loss that has been affected by the pandemic. While the pandemic has kept us apart, there is new hope. Vaccines are here. They will help us move closer to ending the pandemic.
We want everyone in our community to be safe and get back to hugging our families and friends and shaking hands with our neighbors. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine adds one more layer of protection for you, your family and loved ones. Here are some key points about the COVID-19 vaccine:
- All COVID-19 vaccines currently available in the United States are very effective at preventing the disease.
- Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools we have available-wearing masks, staying at least 6 feet apart from people who don’t live with you, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, washing your hands frequently, and getting vaccinated.
The Neighborhood Health Association in partnership with Mercy Health Systems will be sponsoring free vaccines in Spencer Township. Please continue to check our website for further details on when and where the vaccination clinic will be held.
We all play a part in this effort and you are key.
