Humans of Partnership: Raul Aguilar

When I was asked if I wanted the COVID-19 vaccine, I didn’t hesitate. I got the shot because I needed to protect my family. I live with my mother and my grandmother, who is 96. Since the pandemic hit, I haven’t hugged or kissed my grandmother. Even though all of us will soon be vaccinated, we’re still going to wear our masks. It’s a little bit of insurance that’s going to protect us in the long run.
