Due to the increasing prevalence of the Delta variant in Delaware, the Board of Directors of the Delaware Academy of Family Physicians strongly encourages our citizens to receive the COVID-19 vaccination. For the overwhelming majority of patients 12 years of age and older, the vaccine is safe and effective, and the easiest way to slow down the spread of the Delta variant.
As the disease continues to spread and strain our health systems, we advise the following simple acts to help stop the spread:
Practice social distancing when possible
Wear a mask in public places
Get tested if you feel sick.
Wash or sanitize your hands frequently
By doing these things, you will significantly lessen the burden on our health care professionals and system and help ensure our communities are healthy and safe.
