“While I was excited about there being a vaccine, I also was a bit hesitant. But after doing research from reputable sources and asking folks who have been vaccinated about their experience, I too got vaccinated and I’m glad! I feel so much safer and at ease around my colleagues, peers, and strangers. I get to have rehearsals and make music in public again. I got to see my students (still masked) for the first time in a year and I also got to travel the country safely.”
