Covid-19 Update

In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month...

We invite you to participate in our Denim Day campaign. This campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a woman’s rape conviction was overturned because the justice system decided that since she was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. In response to this case, the Denim Day campaign was developed to bring awareness to victim-blaming in sexual violence all across the world. Please join us in spreading awareness and help put a halt to sexual assault by wearing jeans on April 28th. With just a $5 donation, you can support services that help survivors of sexual violence. All participants will receive a starter packet.

Safe Happenings

The success stories of those who chose SAFE, INC.

By: Madison Caver, Case Manager
Read More
This is a story about a woman who decided to say NO to her abusive partner and YES to a healthy lifestyle. Macy was nervous about this transition because she had never lived on her own before. A few days after experiencing the last physical abuse from her boyfriend, Macy sought help from SAFE, Inc. After calling the hotline number and completing an assessment, Macy was approved for emergency shelter. Macy entered the shelter with visible marks from the abuse and the clothes on her back. SAFE, Inc. assisted Macy with immediate needs such as clothing, hygiene products, bedding, and nutrition. Macy also received transportation, counseling, case management, and court advocacy. She attended life skills groups to prepare herself with budgeting, nutrition, coping skills, and stress management. She attended support groups, individual counseling, and medical appointments. Macy quickly got a job and began saving money. Once meeting the majority of her goals, she began her relocation process. With the help of SAFE, Inc.’s assistance programs, Macy was able to relocate into secure housing. Macy filled her home with donated items from our warehouse. Since beginning her journey in a healthy environment, Macy has continued to attend counseling sessions. She has experienced bumps in her road to recovery, but she looks to healthy resources, such as SAFE, Inc., for guidance.

Health moment with S.A.F.E.

Hannah with Mississippi Public Health Institute shares:

“Why should you get a booster shot? Like with getting your annual flu shot, you get it to keep your antibodies up. It’s been several months since many people have had their last
COVID-19 booster shot. So, their bodies aren’t as prepared to fight the infection. Getting a booster shot will re-introduce your body’s defense system to the virus so that it will be ready in case of infection. Getting your COVID-19 booster shot or flu shot this season will help to prevent a serious infection in case you were to contract either virus.”

Now, sharing the latest info from the CDC recommendations on the booster. CDC Statement on ACIP Booster Recommendations

“Today, CDC Director Rochelle P. Walensky, M.D., M.P.H., endorsed the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices’ (ACIP) recommendation for a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine in certain populations and also recommended a booster dose for those in high risk occupational and institutional settings. The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) authorization and CDC’s guidance for use are important steps forward as we work to stay ahead of the virus and keep Americans safe.

This updated interim guidance from CDC allows for millions of Americans who are at highest risk for COVID-19 to receive a Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 booster shot to help increase their protection.

CDC recommends:

  • people 65 years and older and residents in long-term care settings should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 50–64 years with underlying medical conditions should receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series,
  • people aged 18–49 years with underlying medical conditions may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks, and
  • people aged 18-64 years who are at increased risk for COVID-19 exposure and transmission because of occupational or institutional setting may receive a booster shot of Pfizer-BioNTech’s COVID-19 vaccine at least 6 months after their Pfizer-BioNTech primary series, based on their individual benefits and risks.

Many of the people who are now eligible to receive a booster shot received their initial vaccine early in the vaccination program and will benefit from additional protection. With the Delta variant’s dominance as the circulating strain and cases of COVID-19 increasing significantly across the United States, a booster shot will help strengthen protection against severe disease in those populations who are at high-risk for exposure to COVID-19 or the complications from severe disease.
CDC will continue to monitor the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines to ensure appropriate recommendations to keep all Americans safe. We will also evaluate with similar urgency available data in the coming weeks to swiftly make additional recommendations for other populations or people who got the Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines.”
