Do Your Part and Make a Plan to get Vaccinated

The COVID-19 Vaccines are by far the most valuable weapon in our arsenal to combat the COVID-19 pandemic. I cannot encourage you enough to help protect your family, friends, and our community by getting vaccinated. The approved vaccines are safe and highly effective in preventing you from catching the virus and spreading it to your loved ones. When I am eligible, I plan to get vaccinated and I hope you do the same.

While demand currently outpaces supply, the Lehigh Valley and Pennsylvania as a whole continue to receive increasingly larger shipments of vaccine every week. If you are having difficulties in scheduling an appointment, don’t be discouraged. As supply continues to grow, and new vaccines gain approval, everyone who wants a vaccine will receive one.

I encourage you to use these resources to learn more about the approved vaccines, their safety and efficacy and how to schedule your appointment.

Haz tu parte y vacúnate

Las Vacunas del COVID-19 hasta el momento son las armas mas valiosas a nuestra disposición para combatir la pandemia del COVID-19.  Ayude a proteger su familia, amigos, y nuestra comunidad vacunándose. Las vacunas aprobadas son seguras y altamente efectivas como prevención de contagiarse del virus y transmitírselo a sus seres queridos. 

Mientras que en la actualidad la demanda sobrepasa el suministro de vacunas, el Valle de Lehigh y Pensilvania en conjunto continúan recibiendo un aumento en las entregas de vacunas cada semana.  Si usted está teniendo dificultad en hacer una cita, no se desanime.  A medida que el suministro de vacunas continúe aumentando, y se aprueben nuevas vacunas, todo el que desee vacunarse recibirá su vacuna.

Visite la página Web del Departament de Salud de Pensilvania para obtener más información acerca de las vacunas aprobadas, su seguridad y efectividad y como usted puede hacer su cita.

Unemployment compensation Programs Extended

The federal government recently extended all Unemployment Compensation programs, including the additional $300 weekly Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation payments, through September 6.

The maximum number of weeks of eligibility for the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation program was also extended from 24 weeks to 53 weeks, and the maximum number of weeks of eligibility for Pandemic Unemployment Assistance was extended from 50 weeks to 79 weeks.

In addition, up to $10,200 of unemployment benefits for an individual (or $20,400 for a couple, if both members received unemployment benefits) will not be considered federal taxable income in 2020, assuming the individual or couple earned less than $150,000 in adjusted gross income for the year.
