COVID-19 story featuring Emily

Emily gave it a lot of consideration during the pandemic, but ultimately overcame her concerns and decided to get vaccinated against COVID-19. During her journey, she came to trust the vaccines and the scientists who developed them, and grew eager to be face-to-face again with friends and family. Both of Emily’s parents were initially opposed to her getting vaccinated until they themselves contracted COVID-19. They no longer believe COVID-19 is a hoax and encouraged Emily to get vaccinated to keep her from falling ill to COVID-19 as well.
