I’m vaccinated and, no, I don’t know what’s in it – neither this vaccine, the ones I had as a child, nor in the hot dogs I love or gluten-free bread I eat, or in other treatments…whether it’s for cancer, AIDS, or vaccines for children. I trust my doctor when she says it’s needed.
I also don’t know what’s in Advil, Tylenol, or other meds, it just cures my headaches and my pains …
I don’t know what’s in the ink they used for my maple leaf tattoo or every ingredient in my soap, toothpaste, shampoo or deodorant.
I don’t know the long term effect of cell phone use or whether or not that restaurant I ate at this week really used clean foods and washed their hands.
In short…there’s a lot of things I don’t know and never will…
I just know one thing: life is short, very short, and I still want to do something other than just go to work every day all day or stay quarantined at home.
I still want to travel and hug people without fear and find a little feeling of life like it was before.
As a child I was vaccinated for mumps, measles, rubella, polio, chicken pox, and others; my parents trusted the science and I never had to suffer through or transmit any of those diseases.
I’m #vaccinated, not to please the government but:
* To not die from Covid
* To not clutter a hospital bed if I get sick
* To hug my loved ones and friends
* To not have to do tests to go to a restaurant or go on holidays
* To live my life
* To have my kids and grandkids go back to living their best lives
* For #Covid19 to be an old memory
* To protect us, locally and globally
