Dr. Christopher Ohl, Infectious Disease Expert at Wake Forest Baptist Health, shared his weekly update on Facebook Live this week. Most of the segment was spent on why you should get vaccinated.
In his typical short, to the point, and laid back demeanor, Dr. Ohl shared 3 reasons why you SHOULD get your vaccine:
- Be Selfish - Protect Yourself.
- Protect your family, friends and those around you.
- Protect your community at large, do your part to help with herd immunity.

Find your spot to take your shot.
A free COVID-19 vaccine will be available to all who want it, but supplies will be limited at first. Our goal is to vaccinate as many people as quickly as possible given the limited supply of vaccines. North Carolina moves through vaccination phases by aligning to federal priorities while empowering local health departments and hospitals with flexibility to move to the next priority group as they complete phases and have vaccines available. Rest assured: you have a spot to take your shot.
