August 5th, 2021 – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter recently sat down for a taping of ‘Supervisor Spotlight’ with Dr. Christopher Raio, Chief of Emergency Medicine for Catholic Health and Chairperson of Emergency Medicine at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, to discuss the current trend of the pandemic, vaccine hesitancy and the importance of getting vaccinated.
Supervisor Carpenter urges anyone who is still undecided about whether or not to get vaccinated, to have a conversation with their primary care physician who can help clear up concerns. “The COVID-19 vaccine prevents hospitalization and death. The vaccine that is readily available to you, is the vaccine worth taking,” added Supervisor Carpenter.
Supervisor Carpenter reminds everyone to wear a mask whenever appropriate, and continue to maintain good hand hygiene. To see the complete interview with Dr. Raio on ‘Supervisor Spotlight,’ tune in to Altice Channel 18 and Verizon Channel 1982 daily.
