Why should health care workers and other essential workers get vaccinated?Updated: April 28th, 2021
For student doctor and Founder and CEO of Latinx en Medicina, Leslie Gonzalez, her personal decision to get the COVID-19 vaccine was driven by her experience of seeing a lot of patients, both those with underlying health conditions and those without, suffering with COVID-19.
“I knew that once the vaccine was going to be available I wanted to get it, so that i could protect my patients, my community, and my family.”
She says felt safe getting the vaccine because her combined years of schooling, and her own personal research on the vaccines, helped her make an informed decision.
