I recently returned from a trip to the lower 48 where I contracted the coronavirus. Naturally I was vaccinated before I left, so my symptoms weren’t as severe as they would have been otherwise. I strongly encourage being vaccinated. It’s not just about you and your rights. If you care about those you come in contact with, your family should be vaccinated. The coronavirus is more contagious than people realize. All it takes is one casual encounter with someone already infected. The symptoms start out like a cold: coughing, tiredness, loss of taste. I isolated and rested for three weeks before I was well.

If you get these symptoms, by all means get checked out at the clinic. You should not have to be mandated to get yourself vaccinated. It’s just the smart thing to do for yourself and those around you.
