What country are you from, guys, and did you get your COVID-19 vaccine shot already?
As of this writing, half of the adults in the U.S. will be administered with at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by next week, CNN reports. Further, the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) showed that a total of 192 million vaccines have been administered in the U.S. so far.
But why should we get vaccinated against COVID-19? Take a look at some of the reasons below and please feel free to tell us in the comments section the benefits of getting a COVID-19 vaccine that we might have failed to mention:
- Travel – granted it may take a while before we can travel outside of our respective countries, we can at least, start traveling within our own state again. Or, forget traveling long distance; we can, at least, go on a trip to our local supermarket without the fear of contracting COVID-19. Read the guidelines for domestic travel here.
- We can go see our family and friends again. We can have a night out or attend a small, indoor gathering mask free, provided the others you are going with are also fully vaccinated people.
- Yes, vaccinated people can go hug each other now.
- We can even go on dates. People who have been vaccinated have been editing their online dating profiles to say that yes, they got vaccinated already. You can go ahead and edit your own dating profile here.
- For financial reasons. We can’t afford to get sick, and it’s cheaper to get the vaccine as compared to paying for hospital fees.
- Getting a COVID-19 vaccine means protecting ourselves, our friends, loved ones, partners, boyfriends, colleagues etc. from the disease.
CDC has listed a number of reasons as well as to why we should get vaccinated, read their list here. If you wish to track the COVID-19 vaccinations in the U.S., click here, or here for the data around the world.
