"This was a way that I could protect myself and my family from becoming seriously ill from the virus."

Trust the Doctors, She Always Told Me

"When I received the email announcing the first available vaccination dates against COVID-19, I scheduled my appointment right away without any doubts."

When I received the email announcing the first available vaccination dates against COVID-19, I scheduled my appointment right away without any doubts.

I was brought up in Uzbekistan to a mother who is a general surgeon, and was always encouraged by her to follow doctors’ recommendations. I also received a lot of helpful information from my management and trusted public sources about the results of clinical trials for the vaccines and the side effects that could happen. I was prepared to get vaccinated and wanted to do so as soon as it was possible for me to get an appointment. This was a way that I could protect myself and my family from becoming seriously ill from the virus.

I understand that personal protection equipment is still very important, but I feel more secure and confident now that I have received both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Она всегда мне говорила, доверяй врачам!

Когда я получилa электронное письмо с объявлением о первых доступных датах вакцинации против COVID-19, я сразу же, не задумываясь, записалась на приём.

Я выросла в Узбекистане. Моя мама, общий хирург, всегда поощряла меня следовать рекомендациям врачей. Я также получила много полезной информации от моего руководства и доверенных открытых источников о результатах клинических испытаний вакцин и побочных эффектах, которые могут произойти. Я была готова к вакцинации и хотелa сделать это, как можно скорее. Вакцина-способ защитить себя и свою семью от серьезного заболевания вирусом.

Я понимаю, что средства индивидуальной защиты по-прежнему очень важны, но теперь, когда мне ввели обе дозы вакцины против COVID-19, я чувствую себя более уверенно и безопасно.
