Riley Page, Oncology:
“We take care of immunocompromised patients on the oncology floor. This is taking care of them and their families. And my family as well and my friends."
Lindsey Chance, Oncology:
“This is the first time throughout the pandemic that I have felt hopeful about things coming to an end. ”
“I wish people would trust the scientific community more. In today’s climate, there is a lot of mistrust. Being a part of the scientific community, I know the people working on the vaccine are held to a high integrity standard as well as a scientific standard.”
Jim Anderson, Biomed:
“This is the path to getting things back to normal. I am around COVID patients frequently and I want to protect myself and the community. It’s the right thing to do.”
"One day, I was working on a portable X-Ray from the COVID unit. I heard them call code blues from the unit throughout the day. I decided it was time to sign up. Before that, I wasn’t sure. I was thinking I should let others go first, but I decided it was the right thing to do. I got the vaccine the second day it was available."
Denise Dunaway, CoxHealth at Home:
“I’m getting the vaccine for my inspiring, innovative superhero team members; for those who are more vulnerable than me; for those who have made miraculous strides in science; for my family and friends; and for a bright and better future.”
“I want to keep my patients healthy. And, my husband is older and has comorbidities and I don’t want him to get it. I want to be able to see my grandbaby and to travel. I want to get this thing finished!”
