COVID-19 Communication

January 7, 2022

To Support, Inc. staff, providers, and families

In this COVID-19 communication we will cover the following:

  1. COVID-19 variant updates
  2. Support, Inc. vaccine clinic
  3. COVID-19 Operating protocol update
  1. COVID-19 variant updates

As of December 2021, the Omicron variant is the main variant spreading in Colorado. This variant likely spreads more easily than the original COVID-19 virus. Data is showing that vaccine effectiveness against infection for two doses of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) is approximately 35%. A COVID-19 vaccine booster restores vaccine effectiveness against infection to 75%. The COVID-19 vaccine decreases the risk of severe disease, hospitalization, and death from COVID-19. Getting vaccinated and getting boosted is the best way to protect yourself, the individuals we support and our community.

2. Vaccine updates & vaccine clinic

Support, Inc. recognizes the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine for the individuals we serve, providers, families, and employees to ensure we have access to all the tools to protect ourselves throughout the pandemic. Last year we hosted two vaccine clinics at our Aurora office. We are excited to announce we will be hosting another clinic on Wednesday January 26th. This clinic will offer first, second and booster dose appointments of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine. The clinic will be by appointment only. Your Residential Program Coordinator or supervisor will contact you over the next week to two weeks to provide you more details and schedule appointments for those who are interested.

3. COVID-19 Operating protocol update

The CDC updated their COVID-19 exposure and isolation guidance this week. We will be updating our operating protocol and procedures accordingly and will communicate these changes within the next week.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to myself or your supervisor. We will continue to provide updates through email, our website and our Facebook page.
