Vaccines offer light at the end of the tunnel
We all feel COVID fatigue!! Since March, our lives have been turned upside down, thanks to COVID-19. Our world could get a little better now that vaccines for the virus have started to arrive.
The first round of the vaccine from Pfizer made its way across the nation, with the first doses hitting Nebraska Monday. This week, more than 15,000 doses are due in the state.
First priority for immunization goes to our frontline healthcare workers, and rightly so.
When more vaccine becomes available, residents in our senior care facilities will be next in line.
As time goes by, the vaccine will be available to you and me, should we decide to get the shots. (Pfizer’s vaccine requires two shots, with a month in between.)
Ever since the pandemic broke out in the U.S., I’ve said many times that we are fortunate to live where we do.
Yes, the virus has hit rural America and we’ve lost family and friends, too, but nothing to the extent of the most populous states in our country.
As other states are locking down again, we continue to be able to live our lives and do things we used to take for granted—like sending our kids to school or going out to eat.
There’s no doubt COVID-19 played a big role in this year’s presidential election and politics continues to play out in states that want to shut down.
Say want you want about President Trump but he delivered a vaccine by the end of 2020, just as he promised. His critics said it could never be done. He proved them wrong.
The United States will long benefit from the president’s Warp Speed program to get vaccines out to the masses.
These vaccines now provide some light at the end of the tunnel that this pandemic may be coming to an end. We will all welcome that, sooner rather than later.
