Why I'm Getting the Vaccine

Hear from CoxHealth employees on their motivations behind getting the COVID-19 vaccine.

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.” 

Carolyn Beard:

“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!”
