Be Safer! Get Vaccine!

Don’t let your cousin’s friend keep you from making the right decision for you and your family. Ask your doctor if they recommend the Covid vaccine. Everyone at KXXO got jabbed and none of us missed work, though some of us had a reaction (which means it’s working). Family and friends have had Covid; they were miserable and we had to quarantine. Getting vaccinated makes that unlikely – ask your doc! Better safe than sorry. Vaccine Locator shows where to get free vaccines. If we all get vaccinated, we go back to normal.
