Nervous about Covid-19 Vaccination?

Vaccine distrust is a growing problem that can have serious consequences.

Posted: Mar 22, 2021 9:18 PM

Mixed feelings continue to surround the covid-19 vaccines such as concern about the vaccine being created too fast and fears over known side-effects experienced by some. But Matthew Rovira, CEO, of Leading Healthcare of Louisiana tells me he's been vaccinated for Covid-19 and is encouraging others to do the same.

Rovira says his side effects were minimal and although side effects are common, it doesn't mean that every person will experience all of them.

Many professionals are also joining in on the fight to spread knowledge. Pastor Tracie Millard says it's important to know facts about the Covid 19 vaccine.

Fourth year medical student Jasmine Douglas says she understands the hesitancy of getting the vaccine because of how fast it was created, but it's because there was more help available.
