Vaccination Vaccination Vaccination
Like “location” in real estate these are the three most important words in combatting the coronavirus. We have reached a milestone in the U.S. where almost 100 million people are fully vaccinated, and over 200 million have received at least one dose.
Watching this process in motion is fascinating. I visited a mass-vaccination site in Maryland for the vaccine and what I saw was a truly amazing operation. I’ve never seen anything like it. The combination of police, volunteers, our armed forces, nurses and vaccinators working together to vaccinate thousands of people. The whole process was so well run it only took about 45 minutes. Everyone should get vaccinated and if you have a chance to visit one of these sites, it is worth it just to see what can be accomplished when everyone works together!
Vaccines have been used for over 200 years to help us fight off things like smallpox and polio, and now to fight the coronavirus.
Anyone who still has fears of getting the vaccine should speak to their doctor. The process of creating the vaccine was the fastest in history and a tribute to science and government working together. But now we have a huge number of people with the vaccine with miniscule side effects.
We understand how it works, and that there may be risks, but even so, it appears those risks are just tiny. With my background in science and research, I encourage everyone to get the vaccine. If you have side effects, call your doctor or local health department.
COVID-19 started in 2019 in China devastating the world within a few months. To think we have gone from there to where we are in 18 months is amazing. The technology and knowledge gained from this pandemic should help in the face of the next viral outbreak. It could be looked at as an investment in the future of mankind.
Where we go from here is still up in the air, but the future is looking a lot better. If everyone gets vaccinated maybe we can all move forward to a new place where everything seems normal again.
If you have any questions regarding the virus or the vaccine, let us know and we will be happy to address them.
