In an effort to help protect patients, each other and our community, Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness employees and healthcare providers have begun receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. The COVID-19 vaccination is the next step towards helping end the pandemic.
According to the CDC, while experts learn more about the protection that COVID-19
vaccines provide under real-life conditions, it will be important for everyone to continue using all the tools available to help stop this pandemic:
- Wear a mask over your nose and mouth
- Stay at least 6 feet away from others
- Avoid crowds
- Avoid poorly ventilated spaces
- Wash your hands often
The Martinsville Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness continues to coordinate with the Virginia Department of Health, the CDC and HRSA as part of COVID-19 response, preparedness and mitigation.
