Make Sure You Are Fully Vaccinated and Protected (Pfizer and Moderna Vaccines)!

As varients of the COVID virus are starting to appear, it is important that you complete the two shot series if you got your first shot with Moderna or Pfizer Vaccines. These vaccines may protect you against the primary COVID virus but ar not very effective against the varients that are now showing up in the States. 

Please protect yourselves, your family, those you love and the greater Vermont community!  We can do this!!

To learn what vaccinations are recommended for you, visit the CDC website
Sign up and get a COVID vaccine when it's your turn! Learn more and register!

COVID Precautions for Travel and Socializing

You may not be protected from COVID-19 for a few weeks after your second shot. Experts still need to understand more about how COVID-19 vaccines keep us safe from this coronavirus, before changing prevention recommendations. That's why it's important to continue taking steps to prevent COVID-19 and to follow the state guidelines for travel and quarantine.

Self Care: Take care of yourself!

  • Unplug. Don't let the technologies that help you do your work get in the way of your leisure time. Consider turning off cell phones or beepers when you are with family or friends. And avoid checking work email after hours.
  • Be realistic. Remember that everyone has good days and bad days at work. For more information, see the topic Stop Negative Thoughts: Choosing a Healthier Way of Thinking.
  • Reward yourself. When you finish a difficult task, celebrate. Take a short walk or call a friend!
  • Schedule time for fun. Being quarantined is an adjustment for all of us! Be sure to schedule “you time” every day…Take the lunch time virtual yoga, go for a walk, read a book
