In March when the vaccine first came out, I put my name on a wait list online at my local pharmacy and within a few days they contacted me to book an appointment. I just needed my health card and got an appointment within a few days. When I rolled up my sleeve to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine my eyes filled with hopeful tears. I cannot wait until every essential worker has an opportunity to receive the vaccine and I encourage everyone to get vaccinated. The needle was painless and other than a mildly sore upper arm for a few days, I had no side effects – except for lots of hope at the end of the tunnel. Vaccination is a personal decision, and everyone's situation is unique. For me, I have underlying health issues and wanted to ensure I was fully protected as soon as possible. I truly believe the vaccine is safe and the best tool for preventing the spread of COVID-19 and helping us get one step closer to reclaiming our lives.

Let's do our part to get vaccinated as soon as possible!. WHY? Because we all want our life back! The sooner we're all vaccinated, the sooner we can open up the economy, we can see each other again, our kids can go to school, and we can resume social connections which are vital to our health and well-being!

I got the vaccine so I can see my friends and family again sooner - and the Eiffel Tower. I really miss Paris 🙂

A year ago we were facing a pandemic with many challenging unknowns. We were trying to "flatten the curve" but we knew that wouldn't be enough. Then humanity was handed an unexpected gift: COVID19 vaccines. This is our out. Please get the vaccine so we can stop the deadly impact of this virus.
