We all feel great and had no serious adverse side effects. We got vaccinated to protect ourselves, our families, and our patients. There is NO coronavirus in the vaccine, and it is NOT a live virus vaccine.
As I write these words, there are NO EMPTY ICU BEDS IN THE STATE OF TEXAS. Remember, an ICU room is NOT just a room with four walls. Every ICU room needs to be covered by a HEALTHY doctor, nurse, respiratory therapist, patient care tech, and phlebotomist. Please do your part during this ongoing pandemic by following CDC guidelines and please do consider getting vaccinated when it is available to you.
If you have any concerns regarding the vaccine, please feel free to contact your doctor to discuss your concerns further.
