Dr. Esteban DelPilar Morales on Why He Got the COVID-19 Vaccine

"To protect myself so I can keep helping and treating my patients, to protect my friends and family – that’s why I got this vaccine."



It’s been a very long road from when the pandemic started. As an infectious disease physician, I see on a daily basis how challenging and hard it has been for everyone from the patients who come to us for care to our brave nurses and other providers taking care of them.

This moment is what I and many have been waiting for: a safe vaccine to protect everyone from this deadly virus! This represents the tireless work and mountains of science gathered in an effort to fight against COVID-19. To protect myself so I can keep helping and treating my patients, to protect my friends and family, that’s why I got this vaccine. It’s not every day you can help save the world!

Dr. Esteban DelPilar-Morales, Infectious Disease physician at Baystate Medical Center and Assistant Professor of Medicine at University of Massachusetts Medical School - Baystate

Este es el momento que todos hemos estado esperando: ¡una vacuna segura que nos proteja de este virus mortal! Esto representa el trabajo sin cesar y las montañas de ciencia acumuladas en el esfuerzo para batallar contra el COVID-19. Para protegerme así que pueda seguir trabajando y tratando a mis pacientes, para proteger a mi familia, por eso recibí mi vacuna. Después de todo, no son todos los días que puedes ayudar a salvar el mundo.
