We have seen some promising updates within the past several days related to advances with coronavirus vaccine studies and strategies. An advisory panel to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is scheduled to meet to weigh in on which groups of people should be eligible to receive the first doses of a potential coronavirus vaccine.
Demand for the vaccines will far exceed supply for months, and Dr. Anthony Fauci has said each state will take into account “strong recommendations from the CDC” to make its own decision about the order in which people will be inoculated. In addition, two companies (Pfizer and Moderna) have applied for emergency authorization for their vaccine from the Food and Drug Administration, which could grant approval by mid to late December.
We continue to work closely with local hospitals and emergency rooms to monitor the spread of the virus and the effect it is having on our local healthcare facilities and workers. We implore each resident to strictly adhere to the safe and healthy practices as set by the Centers for Disease Control.
- Practice social distancing
- Wash your hands often
- Disinfect frequently touched surfaces (including your phones)
- Cover your mouth and nose with a mask when around others
- Stay home if you are sick
