Why I Will Be Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine
On Nov. 9, Pfizer and BioNTech announced that their COVID-19 vaccine was found to be more than 90% effective in preventing people from contracting the novel coronavirus. On Nov. 16, Moderna announced their COVID-19 vaccine to have an efficacy of 94.5%.
I had zero expectations for news of a potential vaccine. I had started to lose hope and had accepted that my current reality of reduced contact, shielding, and fear every time someone around me coughed or sneezed would be all I knew for a very long time.
