I had my reservations about getting the vaccine. It was the fear of the unknown, what the side effects would be and the long-term implications. I come from a multi-generational family and protecting my parents as well as my nieces and nephews is very concerning for me. My parents and my sister all work for Kaiser Permanente. Together as a family we discussed the pros and cons of the vaccine and decided for our safety that we would get the vaccine. I don’t regret it. I had mild side effects following the second dose for 24 hours, but that’s it. I’m glad my family and I are protected.
