Vaccinations
Many of us are aware that vaccines are crucial and help our bodies fight foreign bacteria or viruses helping us to prevent various infections by alerting/teaching our own immune system to respond to the foreign invader.  For each of us to become more knowledgeable and understand the process of how vaccines work, especially the new mRNA vaccines which Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna are utilizing for their Covid-19 vaccines, I advocate for everyone to do their own research.  Please educate yourself well in the science behind vaccinations so you are informed and can make your decision intelligently based on the science if you are still hesitant regarding your choice of whether to vaccinate or not.  
We have all heard our own physicians, Dr. Fauci, physicians across the globe, the news media, etc., urging and advocating for us to be Covid-19 vaccinated.  Quite often however, an individual’s comfort level of choosing to vaccinate or not lies in the amount of research and knowledge they have personally obtained on the subject matter.  
Listed below are several resources with excellent information to help you begin or further your research regarding the Covid-19 vaccinations.  Once you educate yourself, you will perhaps be comforted in the knowledge you have gained and you will be able to help yourself and those you love make your vaccination decisions.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention fact sheet:

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Q & A site:

National Institutes of Health/US National Library of Medicine:

Mayo Clinic

https://www.mayoclinic.org/coronavirus-covid-19/patient-education

The scientists who are working tirelessly out in the field and in their labs (for example: virologists, epidemiologists, molecular scientists) where researchers work in space suits while studying lethal viruses are all heroes in my opinion.  We know that the emergence of zoonotic diseases is not a new topic to us; Ebola, SARS, bird flu, rabies, ringworm, salmonella, Lyme disease and AIDS are a few examples you may recognize.  For more information on this topic, go to:
https://www.cdc.gov/onehealth/basics/zoonotic-diseases.html
Please do your research and help yourself become knowledgeable so that you can help those you love.
