As a surgeon & ICU doctor I’m not surprised to see this. HCWs are physically & emotionally exhausted. Last year we stepped up putting our own lives & that of our families at risk. This year it was time for everyone else to do the same. #GetVaccinated

100%. I was working 5-6 shifts before the vaccine was available. Now I do my 3 12’s and that’s it because I have a 1 & 3 year old to protect

I “walked out” in protest last year when this shit started. I had zero faith that Americans would do the right thing. I have 1 year of school behind me now. My faith in Americans has not changed.

As a layperson, I certainly understand. It's like firefighters saving an apartment building from a flaming inferno and returning the next day to find the tenants have set it ablaze again. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. Everyone has a breaking point in that situation.

My God. I have Ankylosing Spondylitis and get regular Remicade infusion, I so depend on doctors and nurses to really live. I fully support this obviously painful decision they’re making. Regardless of the field, you have to all be burnt out. “God helps those who help themselves”.

I and my (old enough for it) kids were in line as soon as it was our turn to get the vaccine. My daughter got hers from a local EMT/firefighter who thanked US for coming. It just shouldn’t be this hard. But know there are many of us who appreciate you all.

Not just get vaccinated. Why weren't we building a healthcare system for a pandemic? Our healthcare system is inadequate. $$ for training nurses, aides, doctors, upgrading facilities, etc. We spend trillions on war - lets spend trillion or so on healthcare!!!

Good for them! Somehow people need to get the message that the system is broken.

Thank you so much for your hard work and all the risks you have taken! My heart breaks for all of you at this point! I’m very sorry that so many haven’t returned the kindness by being vaccinated!
