“I totally get that it’s your body and it’s your choice, but if you could see the isolation, the inability to breathe, and the suffering, and the death that we’re seeing, you wouldn’t choose this. Please get your vaccine.” that
“My partners and I at PPC are tired. We’re tired of seeing 50, 60, 70 patients a day. We’re tired of hearing about ICUs that are filled with kids. We’re tired of hearing about ERs that are bursting at the seams. But most of all, I’m tired of taking care of patients that have lost loved ones. I’m tired of seeing kids in the office that have lost a parent or a grandparent, and it’s all preventable—almost all preventable—with two pokes. That’s all it takes. A couple of vaccines can prevent being the one that has grandchildren or children that are mourning you, so please get a shot.”
