Virus and vaccine updates from March 8.
The last year has presented challenges, many unprecedented, and some without very good solutions. It has been very hard to make sense of our world. As oppressive and overwhelming as the problems have felt at times, there have been many shining moments and they continue to see us through.
With flu season ramping up, we're here to remind you - getting an annual flu vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and your loved ones from the flu.
Let's take inspiration from the dedication, strength, and commitment demonstrated by the Olympic greats as we follow our plan.
Here are some resources to share with your friends and family members around the vaccination as eligibility opens up.
On March 17 and 18, EPI held part one of two vaccination clinics for persons served wanting to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
We know this virus is wearing. Stay the course and take time to take care of yourself!
Regardless of what may be in the news, we will continue to follow CDC and IDPH guidance.
EPI workforce, health care professionals invited to receive the COVID-19 vaccine through community partnership.
We have been advocating quite persistently for our workforce and persons served to be included in early distribution plans. While we do not yet have official word, we do see positive movement and will share what we believe to be true today (please know any or all of this information could change).
EPI is actively working with public policy officials to ensure our workforce and persons served are a top priority when it comes to offering the vaccine. Now's a good time to start having conversations with persons served and their supports to make a plan when the vaccine becomes available.
Needs can be fulfilled on EPI's website from November 9 through December 18.
The holidays are quickly approaching and with that in mind we would like to offer a few suggestions along with resources to help keep you safe while connecting with your loved ones this year.
With the election nearing, we wanted to interview an EPI employee who spent some time as an election poll worker. See what she had to share on how she started this journey, what ways you can vote, and what to expect.
As a society we need to be critically invested in making sure organizations like EPI stay healthy for the people they support. We must continue to share their stories and tell our lawmakers they can no longer overlook people with disabilities and the critical services they rely upon.
