COVID-19 vaccines

Find out more about COVID-19 vaccines.

[Border worker] I just got the vaccine done!

The very first person so, yeah,very excited about that.

I feel that it's an extra layer of protection, and for me personally, you know, I live at home and my parents, they're in my bubble.

They're in their seventies so it's important for me to do whatever it is that I need to do to keep them safe and to keep the rest of my family safe.

Yeah, I think it's really important that I got this done today.
