Carin Morrell, public information officer, got vaccinated to protect her family and colleagues.

Carin Morrell, MA, public information officer, University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) Police Department and Office of Emergency Management, was recently vaccinated with the COVID-19 vaccine to protect her parents, sister, and coworkers. 

"I got this vaccine for my sister as she nears her due date for my new baby niece and nephew. I got it for my parents, who haven't yet been able to get the vaccine despite health concerns. I got it for my colleagues, who come to campus each day to keep UMB safe," she said. "Most importantly, I got the vaccine to recognize the contributions of every person who worked to produce this tiny medical marvel in record time."
