Dear County Leader,
The St. Johns County Civic Roundtable is grateful for your leadership and the hard work of County personnel in making St. Johns County one of the highest vaccinated counties against Covid in the state. The latest statistics show that 65% of the county has received the Covid vaccine. We hope the county can achieve an 80% vaccine rate with the continuing efforts of all of us. After all, for ten consecutive years, St. Johns County has ranked as the healthiest county in Florida and we should lead the state in rates of vaccinated citizens. 
 The Civic Roundtable supports all efforts to intensify vaccination information and awareness among those residents who have yet to be vaccinated and offer our assistance in any way possible. Covid vaccines are our best defense against this deadly virus and masks also serve an important role in appropriate settings. We do not need to tell you how worrisome the highly contagious Delta variant is to our community and the dangers it presents in erasing the gains we already have made against this historic pandemic. 
Messaging continues to be an effective and time-tested tool in mitigating the Covid virus. The Civic Roundtable has a frequent newsletter which has a broad circulation in the County and we would be pleased to send out information about the pandemic that your organization wishes to broadcast.
We stand ready to help in any way we can to support you in your efforts and to take on or participate in any appropriate programs to help fight this new threat. Information to be disseminated can be sent to info@sjcroundtable.org. Please do not hesitate to call me at 904-377-5497.
We look forward to working with you.
Sincerely,
Jim
