Dispelling Misinformation about the COVID19 Vaccine: What Agricultural Producers Need to Know (February 12, 2021)
Studies show that COVID-19 vaccines are very effective at keeping you from getting COVID-19. Now that there are authorized and recommended COVID-19 vaccines in the United States, accurate vaccine information is critical. COVID-19 vaccination will be an important tool to help stop the pandemic. None of the COVID-19 vaccines contain the live virus that causes COVID-19 so a COVID-19 vaccine cannot make you sick with COVID-19. While more COVID-19 vaccines are being developed as quickly as possible, routine processes and procedures remain in place to ensure the safety of any vaccine that is authorized or approved for use. Safety is a top priority, and there are many reasons to get vaccinated. Dr. Lisa Morici will talk about how the vaccines have been developed, the safety and efficacy information from clinical trials, and why vaccination works to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Natalie Roy will explain why those who work in agriculture are considered essential workers and may receive prioritization in accessing the vaccine. Please join us in this important webinar so together we can reduce the spread of misinformation and help agricultural communities access the Covid-19 vaccine.
COVID-19 Ag Task Force Response Think Tank Series
COVID-19 is threatening agricultural communities on many fronts. This is a discussion of rural health and safety professionals, Ag commodity associations, NPOs, government agencies, academia and the agricultural community. The goal of these weekly think tanks was to identify risks that farmers, farm workers and ranchers face as it relates to COVID-19. This is where all weekly recordings of the think tanks are housed.
Behavioral Health Planning: A Key to Farming in the Era of COVID-19
COVID-19 adds new uncertainties to farming on top of a five-year or longer economic recession in most sectors of agriculture. Like climate shifts, tariffs, and disease outbreaks in crops and livestock, COVID-19 is largely beyond the control of agricultural producers. Importantly however, we can mostly control how we behave. Agricultural producers will learn how to develop plans for minimizing infections of the virus, set up arrangements for access to necessary inputs such as equipment and repairs, contracts for a labor force and transportation, and where to become knowledgeable about federal and state assistance programs.
