"Remember, the hospitalizations due to COVID-19 - 99.8% of them are people who have not had their vaccine," he said. "So those of you out there who have not had a vaccine; you're a sitting duck right now."
"When it comes your time to get [the vaccine], I'm calling on you to get it. Do the right thing. Get it. Save your family and friends. Make it easier for society to open up. Save our businesses. Keep everybody healthier."
“Knowing we have safe and effective vaccines arriving is like seeing light at the end of a tunnel,” said Dr. Alexia Harrist. “We have an end in sight at this point, which was not true for many months during this pandemic. We have hope and a reminder that this situation is for now and not forever.”
