COVID, COVID, COVID... I know - me, too! But now is not the time to let down our guard. Positivity rate remains at 4% and there are currently over 1000 active cases in Dutchess County. Mask-wearing, social distancing, and routine hand-washing are still necessary even if you've been vaccinated (because whether a vaccinated person can pass the virus to an unvaccinated person is under evaluation). As the Greek goddess of victory (Nike) reportedly said a few thousand years ago, "Just Do It"!
On Saturday, 3/13, the Millbrook Pharmacy gave out 100 doses of the Moderna vaccine at the Grace Church meeting house to those who were eligible and on the Pharmacy wait-list. My wife & I were 2 of many already-vaccinated volunteers who helped with administrative tasks. Kudos to the Pharmacy for a well-run operation. The 2nd doses will be administered to the same individuals on 4/10. Meanwhile, Carmen Schaefer (Pharmacy Manager) is requesting an additional allotment of 1st doses, if available, in the next few weeks.
