We encourage you to get vaccinated. When enough people in the
community are vaccinated, it slows down the spread of disease and reduces the
need for further preventive measures, such as border closures and travel
restrictions. Vaccinations will reduce the health, social and economic
impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and will help
save lives and livelihoods.
