Stories from our community and yours 


“There is a before and after COVID for me. I was infected by COVID, and it was some of the worst days of my life. As a single mother, I could not take care of myself and my five children. I had to separate from them for more than a month, and being the pillar of my home, I can’t go through the same thing again. I need to be healthy to provide what is necessary for them."

- Mary, Raleigh


“My aunt is a high-risk person, and she’s worked so hard as a school custodian throughout the entire pandemic, so I’ve been worried about her. I’m a high school teacher and am around kids all day, so there’s this fear of me having COVID-19 and not knowing it and spreading it to her or to one of the kids.”

- Terrance, Apex


“I think it’s sort of a public health duty to get the vaccine. It’s less about me personally and more about others who are more vulnerable. I want to be free to spend time with people that I love and not be anxious about it. I want my family to feel comfortable visiting. They usually come a couple times a year, but they didn’t this past year.”

- Anne, Apex
