Related notes from WS Health and Wellness Center: Flu Vaccine numbers: community at 21.5%.

The Warm Springs Covid Response team reminds the Warm Springs community to keep masking, social distancing, washing hands, staying away from sick individuals and so on……! Even though talk of vaccine it will be weeks out before any shots could be administered and not all of those wanting a vaccine shot could get one.

It is up to families to protect themselves, remind all of your household to understand the seriousness of this pandemic. It is deadly and it does kill.
