Region – With news of the approval of the Pfizer vaccine and soon Moderna’s, people across the world are breathing a sigh of relief. Experts warn of course that the pandemic is far from over. As such, safety protocols such as wearing masks and social distancing are still critically important. And there is still the matter of convincing enough people that the vaccines are safe.

We will never forget those who perished from this pandemic nor the many brave frontline workers who have and continue to work tirelessly through the pandemic. But we hope and pray that by the middle of 2021, this terrible year will soon recede to the backs of our minds.
