The COVID pandemic is still in place here in New York State. While it is true that over half of the eligible adults have had at least one vaccine, there are still plenty of opportunities for those who would like to get vaccinated. In the beginning stages of the vaccine be distributed, it may have been a challenge to find an appointment but now it is merely a matter of walking in to get your shot.

Like many, I was one the fence about getting a vaccine. After plenty of discussions with my doctor and my wife, I decided the Johnson and Johnson vaccine was best for me. I admit, I am not good with shots and when I got mine, I used the 15 minutes after to take deep breaths and relax. I felt faint but not because of the shot but because of the nerves and anxiety I get when needles are around.

This week, there will be lots of discussion about getting your teens and kids vaccinated. I suggest that you get to know as much as you can about the vaccines and consult with your doctors about them we well. Like anything else this past year, there is plenty of misinformation out there regarding this vaccine. Make the choice that best suits your family.
