Get Your COVID-19 Vaccine TODAY!

Did you know that our Hispanic community has been one of the hardest hit by Covid?

We’re 1.7x more likely to catch Covid, 4x more likely to be hospitalized, and 2.8x more likely to die because of Covid. And that’s because a lot of our community works on the front lines, in service industries which means we’re exposed to a lot of people and therefore more vulnerable to catching the virus. 

If you haven’t gotten the vaccine, don’t worry, there are many options for you to schedule an appointment. You can book an appointment online with CVS, Walgreens, CT.gov or VAMS –  which is the CDC’s Vaccine Administration System. 

Getting the vaccine is free, you don’t need insurance and all you have to do is signup to get it – there will be no questions asked

So far, over 123M people in the US have received their first vaccine dose and that number keeps growing, but we’re already seeing our Hispanic community fall behind  – and given that we’re more exposed than others to catching Covid, the vaccine will help to keep us safe. 

¿Sabías que nuestra comunidad hispana ha sido una de las más afectadas por Covid?

Tenemos 1,7 veces más probabilidades de contraer el Covid, 4 veces más probabilidades de ser hospitalizados y 2,8 veces más probabilidades de morir a causa del Covid. Y eso es porque gran parte de nuestra comunidad trabaja en primera línea, en industrias de servicios, lo que significa que estamos expuestos a mucha gente y, por tanto, somos más vulnerables a contraer el virus.

Si no te has vacunado, no te preocupes, hay muchas opciones para programar una cita. Puedes reservar una cita en línea con CVS, Walgreens, CT.gov, o VAMS, que es el Sistema de Administración de Vacunas de los CDC.

Vacunarse es gratis, no necesitas seguro y todo lo que tienes que hacer es registrarte para recibirla – no habrá preguntas.

Hasta ahora, más de 123 millones de personas en los EE.UU. han recibido su primera dosis de la vacuna y ese número sigue creciendo, pero ya estamos viendo que nuestra comunidad hispana se está quedando atrás – y dado que estamos más expuestos que otros a contraer el Covid, la vacuna ayudará a mantenernos a salvo.

Have you already received your Covid vaccination?

Congratulations on keeping yourself, your loved ones and our community safe.

After you’ve been fully vaccinated, you should keep taking precautions—like wearing a mask, and keeping your distance from others since not everyone is vaccinated today.

The CDC has guidelines on what you can now do but also what you should still avoid after getting the shot.

You can learn more at the CDC’s vaccination site.

¿Ha recibido ya la vacuna Covid?

Enhorabuena por mantenerte a ti, a tus seres queridos y a nuestra comunidad a salvo.

Una vez que te hayas vacunado por completo, debes seguir tomando precauciones, como llevar mascarilla y mantener la distancia con los demás, ya que no todo el mundo está vacunado hoy en día.

Los CDC tienen directrices sobre lo que puedes hacer ahora, pero también sobre lo que debes evitar después de vacunarte.

CT on Track To Expand COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility To All Adults on Thursday, April 1

CT on Track To Expand COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility To All Adults on Thursday, April 1

Governor Ned Lamont announced that the State of Connecticut is on track to expand its COVID-19 vaccination program to the final group of adults, including all individuals between the ages of 16 and 44, on Thursday, April 1, 2021. Individuals in this age group will have access to schedule appointments beginning Thursday morning.

To schedule an appointment, Connecticut residents should visit ct.gov/covidvaccine and enter their zip code in the space provided. From there, they will be presented a list of the closest available clinics and instructions for how to make an appointment at each clinic. Those without access to the internet can call Connecticut’s Vaccine Appointment Assist Line at 877-918-2224. The assist line is available seven days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Appointments are required in advance at all vaccination clinics in the state.

Individuals who are 16 and 17 years old are reminded that they should only sign up for a clinic that is offering the vaccine made by Pfizer, as that is the only vaccine at this point that has been approved for those ages by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Connecticut is currently ranked second in the nation in percentage of population that has received at least one dose.

El gobernador Ned Lamont anunció que el Estado de Connecticut está en camino de ampliar su programa de vacunación COVID-19 al último grupo de adultos, incluyendo a todos los individuos entre las edades de 16 y 44 años, el jueves 1 de abril de 2021. Las personas de este grupo de edad tendrán acceso a programar citas a partir del jueves por la mañana.

Para programar una cita, los residentes de Connecticut deben visitar ct.gov/covidvaccine e ingresar su código postal en el espacio provisto. A partir de ahí, se les presentará una lista de las clínicas disponibles más cercanas y las instrucciones para pedir una cita en cada clínica. Los que no tengan acceso a Internet pueden llamar a la línea de asistencia para citas de vacunas de Connecticut al 877-918-2224. La línea de asistencia está disponible los siete días de la semana de 8:00 a.m. a 8:00 p.m. Se requiere una cita previa en todas las clínicas de vacunación del estado.

Se recuerda a las personas de 16 y 17 años que sólo deben inscribirse en una clínica que ofrezca la vacuna fabricada por Pfizer, ya que es la única vacuna que ha sido aprobada para esas edades por la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos de los Estados Unidos.

Connecticut ocupa actualmente el segundo lugar en la nación en el porcentaje de población que ha recibido al menos una dosis.

Únete al RETO | Prepare-a-thon 2021

Desde 2018, la Cruz Roja se enorgullece en llevar a cabo nuestra campaña “Activa tu Alarma Salva una Vida”., instalando alarmas de humo en vecindarios en toda la región.

Los incendios domésticos continúan siendo el desastre más frecuente durante el COVID-19, y la Cruz Roja mantiene su compromiso a seguir creando conciencia para prevenir los incendios domésticos e informar a las personas cómo pueden protegerse ellos, y a sus familias. Es por eso que estamos organizando un “Prepare-a-thon” a través de una experiencia virtual, para hacer nuestros hogares más seguros.

El “Prepare-a-thon” de la Cruz Roja es un desafío de un mes, que comienza el 8 de abril…¡y necesitamos tu ayuda!

Durante el “Prepare-a-thon”, los voluntarios buscarán educar y preparar a las personas a través de sus redes sobre seguridad y prevención contra incendios en el hogar. Habrá premios para aquellos voluntarios que eduquen a la mayor cantidad de personas.

Los voluntarios recibirán la capacitación necesaria y el material necesario sobre la prevención contra incendios en el hogar para luego, poder compartir la información de manera rápida, en 10 minutos por teléfono o virtualmente por Facetime, Zoom, etc. Los voluntarios pueden brindar la educación cuando les sea más conveniente durante el mes que dure el desafío.

Los participantes pueden registrarse individualmente o en equipo. Para más información dirigirse a: www.redcross.org/ctsoundthealarm or  www.redcross.org/risoundthealarm

Home fires continue to be the most frequent disaster during COVID-19, and the Red Cross remains committed to continuing to raise awareness to prevent home fires and inform people how they can protect themselves and their families. That’s why we are hosting a “Prepare-a-thon” through a virtual experience to make our homes safer.

The Red Cross Prepare-a-thon is a month-long challenge, starting April 8…and we need your help!

During the Prepare-a-thon, volunteers will seek to educate and prepare people through their networks about home fire safety and prevention. There will be prizes for those volunteers who educate the most people.

 Volunteers will receive the necessary training and materials on home fire prevention and then be able to share the information quickly, in 10 minutes by phone or virtually via Facetime, Zoom, etc. Volunteers can provide the education at their convenience during the month-long challenge.
