Thanks to @WBTVNews, @PaigePauroso, and @CarolineHicksTV for spreading awareness about COVID-19 vaccines, especially to those who are at risk due to illness or disease. Rob was interviewed today after getting his first COVID-19 vaccine. You can see the clip here: https://www.wbtv.com/2021/03/15/it-means-so-much-people-with-high-risk-conditions-discuss-significance-covid-vaccinations/
Masks and vaccines have helped protect Rob since being diagnosed with multiple myeloma. Masks are required on the stem cell transplant floor, and with good reason. Rob lost all of his vaccines he had has a baby after his stem cell transplant. Every single vaccine. As such, masks became a normal way of life for a long time after his stem cell transplant.
We have trusted science and Levine Cancer Institute from day one, and he has been getting re-vaccinated for his childhood vaccines lost from transplant for the past 1 1/2 years.
Today, we trusted science again, and happily got the first does of the COVID-19 vaccine, masks included. 🙂
One of the pictures featured in tonight’s newscast was of Rob just a few days after getting home from transplant. He was home bound for a long time, due to having no immune system. If you know of anyone who has a physical or mental disability, and is not able to travel to a vaccine clinic in Mecklenburg County, you might qualify for a home bound vaccination through the county. You can call 980-314-9400, option 3 for English, and Option 8 for Spanish. Or, visit https://www.mecknc.gov/covid-19/pages/vaccine.aspx
