The Power of the COVID-19 Vaccine

COVID 19 Vaccine – CareSource

There have been questions about the effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine and its impact on safeguarding the well-being of our community at large. Although COVID-19 hasn’t gone away, our community is in a stronger place today because we have the tools to protect one another, especially with safe and effective vaccines.

Shielding Our Loved Ones: Preventing Severe Illness

The effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccines provides a robust defense against severe illness. For our foster families, this means an added layer of protection for the children in care, as well as for you and your family.

Community Protection: Fostering Immunity Together

Foster parents play a pivotal role in community immunity for children in care. By getting vaccinated, you not only protect your household but also contribute to the overall health and safety of the community.

Addressing Concerns: Myths and Facts

We understand that concerns and questions may arise. It’s important to note that the COVID-19 vaccines have undergone rigorous testing and continue to be monitored for safety. For more information, please visit the following link: Vaccine Effectiveness Studies.

Flexibility and Adaptability: Keeping Up with Science

The adaptability of the COVID-19 vaccines is reassuring. Ongoing research suggests that the vaccines remain effective against variants, and booster doses are available to ensure a prolonged and enhanced immune response.

 

Moderna’s COVID-19 and Spikevax vaccine & Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 and Comirnaty vaccine have been shown to be 95% effective against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.*

Novavax’s COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to be 90-100% effective against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.*

 

A Collective Effort: Nurturing Health and Well-Being

In the spirit of collaboration and care, let’s continue to champion vaccination within our community.

ENCOURAGE – Encourage fellow foster parents and share your experiences.

FOSTER – Foster a sense of unity in our commitment to the health and well-being of the children in care.

EDUCATE – Address vaccine hesitancy and dispel myths to achieve widespread immunity.
