“I have not yet been eligible to get the vaccine, but I plan on getting it as soon as I’m eligible. I am getting it so that we’re all one-step closer to being able to hold the people we love again. Each time someone gets the vaccine, you are not only protecting yourself and your loved ones, you’re also contributing to a greater herd immunity and protecting folks that have not yet been able to get the vaccine. This is why I think it’s important not to wait once you’re eligible, because at the end of the day each vaccine is bringing us one step closer to our end goal; minimizing the risk for ourselves and loved ones.”
