Showcase your story on social media using #UMBVaccinesWork, and we may highlight your experience.
Why did you decide to get the COVID-19 vaccine? Why should others get it? These are questions on the minds of many now that vaccines are available to help end the coronavirus pandemic.
At the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB), personnel from UMB, the University of Maryland Medical Center, and Faculty Physicians, Inc. are being vaccinated at the SMC Campus Center.
Over the next few months, we will be highlighting members of the community and their vaccination experience. Share your experience getting vaccinated by tagging us @umbaltimore and using #UMBVaccinesWork on Twitter or Instagram. Include why you got the vaccine. You can also submit your photos and comments about your vaccine experience, by clicking here.
Our first entry is from Mohammad, who said after receiving the vaccine:
"I can now go and hold my grandchild. For the last several months, I haven't held my grandchild. I can hug my daughter. I haven't done that for a long while. I'm dying for that. Please, come. Take the shot."
