COVID-19 Vaccines: Communication and Information


Across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic is having devastating effects. We appreciate how much you have already done to adapt during this challenging time. As you know, we have been taking preventive measures at YCCAC against COVID-19 for the past several months to help keep you, our entire staff, your families, and our clients and patients safe. We have worked under some uncertain and often stressful conditions, and you have helped make it possible for us to continue our essential operations.


It’s hard to imagine a time when we didn’t know COVID-19 existed. Now when people say “virus,” we know what they mean. The impact of COVID-19 on our lives, our work, our activities, and our freedom has affected us all.


You’ve kept YCCAC operating through one of the most challenging times in our history. The responsibility is ours, as a community, to help stop this virus. Now we have a new, safe, and effective tool to help us do that—COVID-19 vaccines.


It takes everyone.

We all need to step up to beat COVID-19. We ask you to join us in the coming months, protecting your community, by getting vaccinated.


Getting the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available, gives you an added layer of protection against COVID-19 and could also protect your coworkers and your family. Here are some key points, provided by the CDC about COVID-19 vaccination:

  • All COVID-19 vaccines available in the United States are very effective at preventing the disease.

  • The most common side effects are pain in the arm where you got the shot, feeling tired, headache, body aches, chills, and fever.

  • Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools we have available—wearing masks, staying at least 6 feet from people who don’t live with you, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, washing your hands frequently, and getting vaccinated.
