We all have fears. Sometimes we fear the big things like traumas from the past. There are times we fear the unknown. We feel anxious and overwhelmed by circumstances. And that our fears will haunt us forever.
Some reasons for fears of the vaccine could be due to lack of factual information and the spread of disinformation on social media. The latter is common and harms the confidence of the people.
Some would also fear the side effects or adverse reactions they heard or watched on the news. They perceive it to be realistic and so they refuse to be a victim.
I'm now fully vaccinated against Covid-19. The day before the 123rd celebration of the Philippine Independence, I got vaccinated for the 2nd dose. That was an act of courage and altruism. That's because we protect not only ourselves but also our families, loved ones, and communities.
The time will come for the Covid-19 vaccine will be rolled out to everyone. We can't afford to get sick, and we don't deserve to die. We have to achieve herd immunity so we can regain our lives.
Life has to move on despite the challenges we all face at the moment. Life is good, no matter how worse circumstances are. And on our desire for freedom, we have to give our greatest sacrifice. We need to show our love.
