"The COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective and with over 60,000 Calhoun County residents fully vaccinated it is undoubtedly the protection you need to stay safe and avoid serious sickness and death,” said Eric Pessell, Health Officer of the Calhoun County Public Health Department. “With rising cases in Calhoun County the COVID-19 booster will protect you even further as we are entering the holidays with family and friends.”

If you have not been vaccinated and you have questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccine for you and your family, talk to your primary care doctor. So much uncertainty and confusion is being spread about the COVID-19 vaccine, and speaking with a trusted professional about the vaccine is the best way to get accurate information. Vaccination can mean the difference between life and death.
