We're all ready for life to get back to "normal" - and that's why it is so important for every American who is able to have a COVID-19 vaccination GET THEIR SHOT! Only when the vast majority (>75%) of the population is vaccinated can we safely consider full returns to work, school, play, dining, vacations and more. And more normalcy for the licensed child care industry as well.
No matter what group you fall in, there are most likely vaccines available. Contact your health provider, county health department, and local pharmacies to see about what group they are providing shots for and if there are waiting lists. Right now there are often shots available due to missed appointments or the need to use doses in a timely manner.
As for safety - we are already participating in one of the largest "clinical trials" of all time. To date, more than 113 MILLION COVID-19 vaccinations have been given in the U.S. alone, and more than 400 Million worldwide. Twenty-two percent of Americans have gotten at least one shot and 12% have received two shots. The vaccines are safe to date - much safer than the risk of contracting Coronavirus... or spreading it to a loved one.
