The shot felt like a flu shot which I get every year, and there was no precautions, there was no after effects whatsoever. I encourage everybody to get that vaccination as soon as you can.

It was great; it felt nice to know that I got the vaccine and I can potentially influence others to get it as well and lower the COVID spread.

I believe in the safety and the effectiveness of the vaccine and that's what really pushed me to go ahead and do this as soon as possible.

Our faculty have worked almost non-stop for ten months, but today, in this next few months, really marks the time that we can start to impact this pandemic and hopefully envision a spring where we don't have COVID filling up our hospitals.

Shannon Williams, MD

To me, seeing on the front lines what COVID looks like… the more people we can have vaccinated in our community, the better we'll be, so personally, I think the benefits outweigh the risks for me and then I think it's good for our community too.

Barbara Printz

It was a wonderful experience, to know that now, you know, we're on the road to getting out of this pandemic.

Richard Giovannelli, MD

I chose to get the vaccine for a couple of reasons. Number one, I am involved in patient care and I thought it would be my responsibility to get the vaccine if I was going to continue with patient care.

Diane Spencer

I felt nothing. It was the easiest inoculation I've had. It's way easier than a flu shot. I think it's essential that we get vaccinated or this virus is going to go on forever.

Jeremy Foley

Obviously, had a bunch of shots in my life, and this one was, uhm, almost completely painless. I think that, uhm, it’s very, very important for this country, this world, obviously this community, uhm, that as many of us get this vaccine as possible.

Mike Foley, MAMC

I hate to use the cliche, but I didn't feel a thing. Uh, the only thing I was disappointed I didn't get a lollipop.
