For the health and safety of the public and City employees due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Atlantic Beach is rescheduling or canceling most Recreation Department activities until further notice; after-school programming is the exception. Also, with limited exceptions, all City-permitted activities inside recreational facilities are being rescheduled or canceled until further notice. As such, Movie Night scheduled for Aug. 21 at Bull Park is canceled; the Jazz Festival scheduled for Sept. 4 at Johansen Park is postponed until further notice; and the Acoustic Night events scheduled for Aug. 15 and Aug. 29, at Bull and Beaches Memorial Veterans parks, respectively, will not be held in-person.

ADDITIONAL INFO ON THE CORONAVIRUS DELTA VARIANT

The Delta Variant is creating a spike in cases not seen since before vaccines became available. It appears the variant is targeting the young and unvaccinated but can still infect individuals who have been vaccinated. This new revelation recently led to the CDC revising its guidance on mask wearing indoors. The CDC’s decision was largely based on data coming out of Barnstable, Massachusetts where the vaccination rate was 69% but the virus was spreading in large gatherings.

Understanding mRNA COVID-19 Vaccines 

 

COVID-19 mRNA vaccines give instructions for our cells to make a harmless piece of what is called the “spike protein.” The spike protein is found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19.

  1. First, COVID-19 mRNA vaccines are given in the upper arm muscle. Once the instructions (mRNA) are inside the muscle cells, the cells use them to make the protein piece. After the protein piece is made, the cell breaks down the instructions and gets rid of them.
  2. Next, the cell displays the protein piece on its surface. Our immune systems recognize that the protein doesn’t belong there and begin building an immune response and making antibodies, like what happens in natural infection against COVID-19.
  3. At the end of the process, our bodies have learned how to protect against future infection. The benefit of mRNA vaccines, like all vaccines, is those vaccinated gain this protection without ever having to risk the serious consequences of getting sick with COVID-19.
