Doctors at Wilmington Health still working to ease COVID-19 vaccine worries

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Thousands of people around North Carolina receive the COVID-19 vaccine everyday. But there are still some people who have concerns surrounding the shot and its safety.

Doctors at Wilmington Health recently put together a video attempting to ease people’s vaccine fears. They say it’s important for everyone to get their shot as soon as they can, and that the risk for side effects is low.

Doctors feel it will take everyone in the community doing their part to end the pandemic.

“It’s not necessarily about protecting you,” doctor Lekeshia Jarrett said. “It is about protecting all of us, and helping the community to open back up. Helping us to feel comfortable with each other again, and able to spend time together.”

Wilmington Health providers are hopeful their initiative will help convince more people to get their COVID-19 vaccine.
