"I received the shot for the health and safety of others, including my parents who are over 65. I caught COVID-19 8 days after I got married in June. This was probably the hardest thing because I couldn’t be around my husband or kids who all tested negative. God really tested my vows real soon. Being enclosed in a room for 14 days with body aches, loss of taste and smell was no joke. The shot was something to truly be thankful for, especially because it can protect me and others around me."
