Springer’s platform centers around continuing the legacy of the late, great civil rights attorney and State Representative John W. Walker, Sr. who believed and promoted the Constitution of the United States wherein every citizen be afforded the opportunity to live in a society that promotes prosperity, liberty and justice for all. He also believed that “education” was key in promoting the constitutional rights of citizens in District 76. Springer has adopted those beliefs as well.
Prior to Representative Walker’s death, he asked Springer to continue the fight for the constitutional rights of not only the residents of District 76, but in other parts of the community as well. Springer has accepted his challenge! Having worked along-side Walker for more than 25 years, she is committed to the great legacy that Mr. Walker has left behind.
Springer has worked tirelessly the majority of her life in helping to serve the children and families, not only District 76, but in Pulaski County and across the state of Arkansas. She will continue to be the voice for residents, not only in District 76, but across Pulaski County and the State.
Springer is committed to continuing the legacy of her mentor, Representative Walker. In doing so, she will insist: 1) that no new legislation negatively impact the citizens of District 76 and other citizens in the state similarly situated; 2) upon new legislation promoting economic development be equitably distributed throughout the district and the state; 3) upon maintaining our public school system in the State, particularly in Pulaski County, Arkansas; 4) upon continued funding of public education in an equitable manner across the state of Arkansas and 5) all employees of the State be equally treated and respected; and that due process procedures are followed.
In an effort to keep you informed about the latest news related to COVID-19, we wanted to update you on the Omicron variant, new authorization of a treatment to prevent COVID-19 in certain individuals, and new booster recommendations.
• Since the Omicron variant was identified, we expected to see cases here in the United States.
• To date, the Omicron variant has not been identified in Arkansas.
• Despite the detection of Omicron, the Delta variant remains the most common strain in the United States and Arkansas.
• It is not yet known how easily Omicron spreads compared to the Delta variant.
• More studies are needed to know if there is more severe illness or death in people infected with the Omicron variant who have already been vaccinated or become reinfected.
• Based on early information from South Africa, no unusual symptoms have been reported in people who have become infected with the Omicron variant.
Authorization of Antibody Cocktail for Immunocompromised People
• On Wednesday, December 8, 2021, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized AstraZeneca’s antibody medicine designed to prevent COVID-19 in certain adult and patients aged 12 years and older, who are not currently infected with COVID-19 and have not been exposed to someone with the virus.
• In order to receive this medicine, the patients need to either have moderate to severely compromised immune systems due to medical conditions or medications/treatments or have a history of a severe adverse reaction to a COVID-19 vaccine.
• The preventative medicine is administered in two injections given during the same clinic visit.
• This medicine could prevent COVID-19 in at-risk individuals for six months.
• While this is not substitute for vaccination, there are certain immune compromised individuals who cannot receive a vaccination and need an alternative option to prevent infection.
• On Thursday, December 9, 2021 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) expanded COVID-19 vaccine Booster Recommendations to 16-and-17-year-olds.
• At this time, only the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is authorized and recommended for adolescents aged 16 and 17.
• COVID-19 boosters help increase the protection against Omicron and other variants.
We are still learning about the emerging COVID-19 variants. However, we know what people can do to protect themselves. That includes getting vaccinated, wearing a mask indoors in communities of high transmission regardless of vaccination status, staying 6 feet away from people, avoiding crowds and poorly ventilated spaces. For information on where you can go to get vaccinated, go here: https://www.healthy.arkansas.gov/programs-services/topics/adh-covid-19-vaccine-clinics.wn-like spikes on their surface. There are currently seven different strains of this virus with COVID-19 being the latest addition. According to the World Health Organization 80% of people with COVID-19 have a mild form of the illness with cold- or flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, or shortness of breath). The people most likely to get seriously ill from this virus are people over 60 and/or those with pre-existing health conditions. Individuals experiencing symptoms and who recently traveled to an infected area or haves come into contact with a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 should call their healthcare provider and tell them their symptoms and contact with the virus.
Since treatments and vaccines are not currently available, preventing the spread of COVID-19 will be the best way to protect people. Below are methods to reduce the risk of transmission; reinforcement of these practices through your office can help combat the spread of COVID-19 and other illnesses such as the common cold and influenza.
