Reason #6 to get vaccinated: IT IS SAFE!
Safety studies were done on tens of thousands of patients. Over 218,000,000 doses have been distributed in the U.S. with very few problems.
Reason #5 to get vaccinated: PROTECT YOURSELF—Even though you may have heard some people do not get very sick from COVID-19, you have NO WAY of knowing how COVID-19 will affect YOU. Some people die from it and others have had debilitating long-term effects. That’s not a risk you want to take!
Reason #4 to get vaccinated: The shot helps prevent YOU from getting the virus, so you are LESS LIKELY TO SPREAD THE DISEASE TO OTHERS, especially the vulnerable population. (Got parents or grandparents, anybody?)
Reason #3 to get vaccinated: MONEY. While as Christians money is not the center of our lives, in this world money is relevant. The vaccine is free! Getting vaccinated stops you from getting COVID-19 and getting sick. That avoids you having to be out of work and losing money.
Reason #2 to get vaccinated: It is the quickest way we can get back to normal. That includes getting back into that wonderful old bulding at the corner of 18th and Locust.
Reason #1 to get vaccinated: In the words of Ms. Esther:
"I've been getting some kind of vaccine ever since my kindergarten days. Today's COVID-19 is just one more.
I'm doing it for myself
I'm doing it for my family
I'm doing it for you!"
