I’ve had multiple family members and patients acquire COVID-19, and I feel getting the vaccine will help keep me healthy and those around me healthy, too. I was anxiously awaiting my turn to get vaccinated and was thrilled to find out I could get it the first day it was offered in Colorado Springs, on December 23. That was the best Christmas present! The good news is, the vaccines currently available do an excellent job at preventing serious COVID-19 illness and death. Go ahead and get whichever vaccine is available to you!
