June 2020 Newsletter: LIFTT Encourages everyone who can to get the COVID-19 Vaccine
June 4, 2021
Dear Consumers and Friends of LIFTT,
The team here at Living Independently for Today & Tomorrow would like to encourage everyone who is eligible and medically able to as soon as possible get a COVID-19 vaccine. Getting all who are able vaccinated against COVID-19 is a critical step in moving our communities, state, nation, and the world out of the darkest days of the last year.
The COVID-19 vaccines being given out by local health departments and other medical providers in our communities are safe and effective and completely free of charge! Visit vaccines.gov to find a location in your area and information about how to make an appointment. You can also find vaccination site information by texting your zip code to 438829 or by calling (800) 232-0233.
If you are a person with a disability and you need assistance in finding a vaccine location near you, making an appointment, getting to a vaccination site, or face other barriers; LIFTT can help you navigate the process. Please give us a call at (406) 259-5181, or send us a message at liftt.org/contact.
