Humans of Partnership: Miguel Ceja

I was hesitant at first because it was a brand-new vaccine, and I didn't know how I would react. Then I started working in the COVID-19 vaccination clinic, and I learned a lot. I ended up getting my first vaccination so a dose wouldn't go to waste. My grandmother is living with me, and she's high-risk, so getting the vaccine was essential to keeping her safe. I also want to go to sports games again. I've met many different people at the clinic. I've seen them being nervous and skeptical to shedding tears of joy. In the end, they're all happy to get the vaccine. Don't fear the vaccine. It's not that bad.
