“Since the start of the Covid-19 vaccine, I hear family, friends and supporters say they’re not sure about taking the vaccine. I understand that there is distrust especially when it comes to historical factors. I want to keep my community safe because it’s health, safety and wellness is my top priority.
My mother in particular has pre-existing conditions and never had left the house since the start of the pandemic. I want her to be safe and finally be comfortable enough to get fresh air.
I want my entire community to be protected. It’s important to block out misinformation and start prioritizing our health and each other’s safety.”
Community Comes First
