Help your older neighbors get a vaccine appointment

Dear fellow Hanoverians:

I love how the Hanover Emergency Management folks always find a way to make
the best out of a challenging situation.

As you probably already know, there’s not a lot of vaccine kicking around.
First responders and then seniors over 75 years of age were prioritized
first, and seniors over 65 or people with 2 or more certain medical
conditions will be allowed to receive their first shots beginning Thursday,
February 18th. For more information about eligibility, go to:

The vaccine that is available to all of those folks is largely available
only to those with a computer and/or the ability to navigate a
less-than-intuitive state website, found here:
. Based on my conversations with my older friends, that leaves out far too
many people.

The issue is that some currently eligible folks aren’t universally
computer-savvy. Here’s where the Hanover Emergency Management folks come
in! Starting this week, the Hanover COVID-19 Hotline (781) 924-1925 will
be STAFFED with helpful computer-savvy Hanover staff who can answer your
questions in real time AND help make an appointment for people who qualify.
It will be staffed Monday – Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. On
weekends, holidays and after 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday, the excellent 24
hour recorded hotline will answer lots more of your basic questions.

The irony of this e-mail is that it is probably not reaching the people who
need it most. :) So, therefore, a request, dear readers. Please call
your favorite retired neighbor this week and see if they need help getting
vaccinated. If so, please give them that hotline number – (781) 924-1925.
Spread the word…let’s care for each other, Hanover!
