Why I chose to get the vaccine: “To be safe. I want to protect my health. When you are around the public all day, why take the risk?”

What I am looking forward to: “Getting together with family and friends. Everyone has had to put their whole life on hold. Things you enjoy doing you couldn’t do. The holidays were a big letdown this year, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter. Our family is big. There are 32 of us – it’s a crowd – and we like to get together for picnics, holidays and other things. I miss that.”

What I would say to someone who has not yet gotten vaccinated: “To each their own. People can do what they want but I hope no one looks down at me because I got the shot. Read about it. Learn about it.”
