We know many people are interested in the COVID-19 vaccination and want to assure you that we are working through a priority list set by the Department of Health above.  

 Vaccination is the most important thing you can do to protect your community against serious illnesses.  When enough people get vaccinated, it’s harder for a disease to spread to those who can’t have vaccines.
