As the flu season is getting ready to start there will be a great amount of confusion going around… Is it a common cold…? Is it the flu??? OR is it Covid-19?.?.?.?Looking Around Guilty GIF - Looking Around Guilty Confused - Discover & Share GIFs

Why not avoid all the confusion and try to minimize the spread of any of this? Starting off by simply wearing your mask in public and washing your hands frequently.Surprised GIF - Surprised Black Guy - Discover & Share GIFs

Pretty simple context right? Welp, not really. Understanding how sickness starts and how it’s caused is one tricky topic to breakdown. The best thing to do for yourself and loved ones is honestly trying to take the right precautions. What could they be? Staying safe, and the most pounded thought of the year of 2021, GET VACCINATED.!.!

So many thoughts come to peoples mind when they think of the Covid-19 vaccine. It’s hard to believe who or what these days. But one thing I always like to say is look around you… Many health care workers, teachers, and elderly folk have had their shot since like December of 2020. They are all totally fine! Yes side effects do come just like with any shot. You may experience some muscle ache the day of or after. You may experience nothing or some other side effects, but at least you’d know you’re somewhat protected against this virus.

We live in a country where we are so lucky to have access to the Covid vaccination for free. As a Latino, I can tell you that I’ve watched the news and there’s some Central American countries where people are going the literal extra mile to take buses to Mexico just to get the Covid-19 shot. And here we are with the convenience of stopping at many groceries stores or pharmacies that offer this luxury for free.

We must not take this opportunity for granted. And speaking of which, I don’t if y’all know, but CCBC really does care. They themselves have gone once again the extra mile to reach out to the college and community and bring vaccination clinics to campus! Isn’t that great?!

I highly recommend you guys that are not vaccinated take the initiative to get your covid shot on campus. And like I had said earlier in my first blog of the semester if you get fully vaccinated by October 30th 2021, you can be eligible for the $100 incentive showing proof/sharing for their vaccination card. These clinics will be hosted at one of our main campuses on different dates so you could plan ahead.
