On Tuesday 8/9/22 the Business Committee passed resolution 70-22 Public Health Proclamation on Advancing COVID Vaccines in the LEKT Community:

This resolution encourages everyone aged 6 months and older in the LEKT community to remain up to date on their COVID vaccines and participate in the COVID vaccine support program. Getting a COVID-19 vaccine is a safer, more reliable way to build protection than getting sick with COVI-19, COVID-19 vaccination helps protect you by creating an antibody response without you having to experience potentially sever illness or post-COVID conditions.

If you or anyone in your family is not up to date on your COVID vaccines, please visit the LEKT Wellness and Back to School event next week to get your COVID vaccines. This event is in collaboration with WA DOH Care-a-van and you may pre-register for a vaccination at the link here: https://prepmod.doh.wa.gov/appointment/en/client/registration?clinic_id=17602
