Mayor Summey on Getting Vaccinated

We understand that some people may be concerned about getting vaccinated against COVID-19.


  • Vaccination builds protection: COVID-19 vaccines help keep you from getting COVID-19. They produce immunity and are effective at preventing the disease.
  • Vaccination slows the spread of COVID-19: When more people are immune to a disease, it’s harder for the disease to spread.
  • It’s safer than getting the disease: COVID-19 can have complications that are serious and life-threatening. In addition, a person with COVID-19 can spread the disease to family, friends, coworkers, and others.
  • Vaccination will help stop the pandemic: Slowing the spread of COVID-19 with vaccination and other measures will help us put the COVID-19 pandemic behind us.
