INFORMATION ON MODERNA, PFIZER, & JANSSEN VACCINES
Despite our initial expectation of vaccines coming out later this year, three vaccines have been released since earlier this year. These vaccines are Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson's Janssen, and they're quickly being administered all over the United States. As vaccination appointments and administered vaccines continue to grow, we're starting to see more Americans, especially immigrants and refugees, refusing or delaying to receive their vaccines. We've been dispelling myths and easing worries through informational flyers and posts breaking down each vaccine's side effects, effectiveness, expectations, and ingredients. Here are the flyers used to educate our community on the Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen vaccines.
MOTHERS & VACCINES: HOW WILL THE VACCINE EFFECT THEM AND THEIR CHILDREN?
One of the most vulnerable groups worried about the vaccines is expecting or breastfeeding mothers. This group has been concerned over each vaccine's effect on their breastfeeding babies or future newborns. The IRCM needs to address this concern because we serve many expecting or breastfeeding mothers.
WHEN CAN I GET VACCINATED: UNDERSTANDING WHOSE ELIGIBLE FOR THE VACCINE IN MAINE
The IRCM and our sister agencies have worked hard to provide Mainers with the updated eligibility dates to receive their vaccines. As soon as a person is eligible to receive a vaccine, they can register for a vaccination appointment through the state or local pharmacies. We wanted to ensure eligible Mainers knew where to book their appointments and how to access transportation to their vaccination appointments.
It has become difficult to find available vaccination appointments now that all Mainers are eligible to receive the vaccine. It has and is vital for all Mainers to know the varied ways that they can book their appointment.
