World Immunization Week

The #HPV #vaccine, like all vaccines, plays an important role in disease prevention. Join the World Health Organization (WHO) in celebrating World Immunization Week 2020 by learning about the importance of all vaccines: https://www.who.int/news-room/campaigns/world-immunization-week

#VaccinesWork #ahecHPV

who.int World Immunization Week aims to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. Immunization saves millions of lives every year.

If you have symptoms of COVID-19 (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) and want to get tested, call your doctor first. Also check with your state or local health department, which will have the latest information on testing. While supplies of these tests are increasing, it may still be difficult to find a place to get tested.

Learn more: https://bit.ly/34zW3cg

Do you think you may have COVID-19? If you think you’re sick, follow guidance about when to call your doctor:

-Monitor your symptoms
-Call ahead before visiting your doctor
-Avoid close contact with others when you’re out

Most people who get COVID-19 can take care of themselves at home. If you need to see a doctor, take precautions to protect yourself and others around you. See more: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html

Wearing a cloth face covering CORRECTLY can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others. When you go out on essential trips, follow these “do’s”.

If you have a child, remember those under age 2 should not wear a face covering. See https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html

cdc.gov

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Your cloth face covering should:

✔️ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils

✔️ Fit snugly against the sides of the face

✔️ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through

✔️ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape

Do not buy surgical masks to use as a face covering. Those are intended for healthcare workers and first responders. Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings.

Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels.

Learn more at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover.html

cdc.gov Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.

Much is unknown about how the virus that causes COVID-19 spreads. We believe it spreads mostly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when someone who is sick coughs or sneezes.

You can help prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses like COVID-19 by following simple daily precautions.

[04/22/20]   Practice social distancing by putting space between yourself and others. Continue to practice healthy habits to help slow the spread of COVID-19.

Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds
Clean and then disinfect frequently used surfaces
Stay home if you’re sick
Avoid touching your face

Although the number of reported 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) cases in children remains low across the
nation, it is important to communicate information to your children about diseases like the coronavirus.
Parents, family members, school staff and other trusted adults can play an important role in helping children
make sense of what they hear in a way that is honest, accurate and minimizes anxiety or fear. Check out this information sheet to learn about how you could talk to your children about COVID-19:https://www.health.pa.gov/topics/Documents/Diseases%20and%20Conditions/COVID-19%20Talking%20to%20Kids.pdf
