Greetings from District Governor Jessika Hane 

Spring is here and it brings GREAT news-as of April 1, 2021- All Hoosiers 16+ can sign up to receive their COVID vaccine. This means that all Rotarians and Rotaractors in southern Indiana can begin to get vaccinated. HOORAY!!!
(Please visit for more information on how to sign up).

I’ll be receiving my second dose in early April and I want to encourage each of you to get vaccinated so that we can begin to visit and volunteer safely, in-person.

As Rotarians, we understand the importance and effectiveness of vaccines. Our fight to end Polio shows us that vaccines work. It also shows us that Rotarians, as community leaders, have the ability to help encourage and educate others about vaccines. Rotary International President, Holger Knaack offers the following advice and encourages club members to:
**Use Rotary’s knowledge of vaccine safety and efficacy based on
our polio eradication experience to support vaccination efforts in
your communities.
** As vaccine distribution begins in your area, partner with local
organizations or health authorities to offer your club’s support with
vaccination efforts as required.
** Help combat the powerful, growing force of vaccine resistance and
misinformation. Advocacy in our communities is critical — we need
to spread the message about the power of vaccines to protect
** Stop the spread of COVID-19 by continuing to engage in projects
supporting mask-wearing, distancing, proper hygiene practices,
and donations of personal protective equipment — before and
after vaccination.

I’ve seen many Rotarians and clubs on social media taking part in vaccine clinics, providing supplies and snacks to volunteers and sharing the good news of their own vaccinations. Keep up the good work everyone. Let’s all get vaccinated so that we can see each other soon!
