Rebecca Weston, an assistant professor of nursing, got vaccinated for the safety of her family and students.

Rebecca Weston, EdD, MSN, RN, CNE, an assistant professor of nursing at the University of Maryland School of Nursing, recently received the COVID-19 vaccine to protect her family. Also, she wanted to be able to protect those she will be vaccinating.

“I got vaccinated for my husband and kids, who need me here, healthy. I got vaccinated for every nurse I've ever worked with or taught who has worked on the front lines of this pandemic and is exhausted. I got vaccinated so I can safely start vaccinating others."
