We know that Leonia will not be receiving enough vaccine to satisfy 100% of the demand; while we are sorry that we aren’t able to serve everyone immediately, we are glad to be able to at least be continuing our local vaccine efforts. Every person who tries to get an appointment and is not successful will I am sure be frustrated; while understandable, this is completely beyond our control. We ask for everyone’s continued patience as we do all that we can to obtain as much vaccine as possible, as quickly as possible, and will continue to keep everyone advised regarding our progress.
 
Until then, please continue to wear a face covering when outside of your home, strictly follow social distancing guidelines, and wash your hands frequently, so that we can continue to keep everyone as healthy and safe as possible.
