Get Vaccinated

Get Vaccinated

After a few weeks of zero positive COVID cases in our community, we now have 6 cases. The need to increase our vaccination rate is more important than ever as there are reported cases of the Delta variant in Morley. Delta spreads easily between people and may lead to more serious outcomes than other versions of COVID-19. In order to protect ourselves and our community, we need to be fully vaccinated.

Vaccines gives us a high level of protection from serious illness and death from COVID-19 variants, including Delta. The more people are vaccinated, the less opportunity the virus has to spread and develop new variants.
