Today’s Takeaway: The long-awaited news that the COVID-19 vaccine is now available is so encouraging! For more information, be sure to contact your local physician or health department to find out where vaccines are being distributed in your area. Know where and when to go and be sure to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT. However, even after getting the vaccine we still need to practice prevention efforts like wearing masks, handwashing, and social distancing. We never know what tomorrow will bring and each day truly is a gift. We’re so lucky to have this day, so let’s take care to protect our physical, emotional, and mental health. We all need to work together to stay healthy and do our part to combat this pandemic. Be sure to eat well, exercise (even if it’s just walking up and down your stairs!), get enough sleep, and drink plenty of water. I’m Florine Mark and that’s “Today’s Takeaway.”
