Get the vaccine

  • Comments

To the editor: To the residents of Fairbanks, let me be an example to you all. I would like to encourage you all to get the Covid shots because I had Covid and pneumonia. Also, I was on a ventilator and came close to dying. I pulled through, and I am happy to be alive today. I thank God every day because I know he was watching over me.

I would to let you all know Covid is real and not fake, so please get the Covid shots so we can start a new beginning and not look back and put Covid behind us and move forward. The Covid vaccine will help every one of us. Another thing — please still wear your masks because masks will help protect you.

God’s peace to you all.
