Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for Residents April 6, 2021

CWP seal

There are currently an estimated 347 active cases in our City, up 38 from our call last week. Over the last 7 days we are averaging 24 new cases per day. 

 

CDC data is showing that COVID-19 cases throughout the country, including in New York, are on the rise. Part of the reason for this trend is the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant. This variant appears to be affecting younger people in greater numbers. It remains critical that we all double down on the common sense safety measures that have proven effective: Continue to wear a mask when you are within 6 ft. of others and practice social distancing. Taking these precautions, along with expanded vaccine eligibility in New York, is what will ultimately get us across the finish line safely.

 

As of today, New Yorkers age 16 and up are eligible for the vaccine. Given that the B.1.1.7 variant seems to impact younger people at a higher rate, this expanded vaccine eligibility is Great News for all of us. I strongly urge you to make your vaccination appointment as soon as possible for whichever vaccine is available to you.  All three vaccines authorized for use in the United States are safe and effective. Delaying your vaccination in an attempt to obtain a particular vaccine will expose you to risk unnecessarily.

 

How do I get an appointment? 

  • Check vaccinefinder.org for local pharmacies, clinics, and other locations that have received doses of the vaccine and schedule your appointment online or call the provider directly for an appointment. VaccineFinder was developed by Boston Children’s Hospital with support from the CDC.

 

  • Check the State website, ny.gov/GetVaccinated for appointments at state–run vaccination sites. Check the site regularly, as new appointments become available throughout the day.

 

  • Go to Health.Westchestergov.com, to check availability and schedule an appointment at the County-run vaccine clinic located at Westchester Community College. 

 

  • For those who need assistance securing an appointment, call our White Plains COVID Angels at (914) 422-1378 between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm.

 

Our next call is on Tuesday, April 13th. Until then remember, we’re standing together by staying apart.


 

Actualmente hay un estimado de 347 casos activos en nuestra ciudad, 38 más que cuando lo llamamos la semana pasada. Durante los últimos 7 días, hemos tenido un promedio de 24 casos nuevos por día.

 

Las estadísticas de la CDC muestran que los casos de COVID-19 en todo el país, incluso en Nueva York, están aumentando. Parte de la razón de esta tendencia es la variante B.1.1.7 que es extremadamente contagiosa. Esta variante parece estar afectando a un alto número de personas más jóvenes. Por favor continúe usando una mascarilla cuando esté a 6 pies de otras personas y practique el distanciamiento social. Tomar estas precauciones, a la vez que más personas ya se han podido vacunar nos acercara a la meta de manera segura.

 

A partir de hoy, los neoyorquinos de 16 años en adelante podrán vacunarse. Dado que la variante B.1.1.7 parece afectar a una mayor cantidad de personas jóvenes, el que los jóvenes de 16 años o más se puedan vacunar es una gran noticia. Le recomiendo que haga una cita de vacunación lo antes posible para cualquier vacuna que esté disponible para usted. Las tres vacunas autorizadas para su uso en los Estados Unidos son seguras y eficaces. Retrasar su vacunación en un intento de obtener una vacuna en particular lo expondrá a riesgos innecesarios.

 

¿Cómo consigo una cita?

Visite vaccinefinder.org para ver que farmacias, clínicas y otros lugares locales han recibido dosis de la vacuna y programe su cita en línea o llame al proveedor directamente para programar una cita. Vaccine Finder fue desarrollado por el hospital de los niños de Boston con el apoyo de la CDC.



  • Visite el sitio web del estado, ny.gov/GetVaccinated para citas en los sitios de vacunación administrados por el estado. Visite el sitio con regularidad, ya que se añaden nuevas citas continuamente.

 

Visite Health.Westchestergov.com para verificar la disponibilidad y programar una cita en la clínica de vacunas administrada por el condado ubicado en Westchester Community College.



  • Aquellos que necesitan ayuda para hacer una cita, pueden llamar a nuestros Ángeles COVID de White Plains al (914) 422-1378 entre las 8:00 am y las 6:00 pm.

 

Nuestra próxima llamada es el martes 13 de abril. Hasta entonces, y recuerde que estamos más juntos manteniéndonos más separados.
