#VaccinatedToSaveLives: “This virus has caused severe illness and death for many people. To protect myself and others around me, I got the COVID-19 vaccine. I encourage those that have not been vaccinated to get vaccinated, so we can resume all activities before the pandemic and protect people in our community.”

#VaccinatedToSaveLives: “I personally knew two people who did not survive the virus. I would never want anyone else to suffer a loss over something that can be prevented. I got vaccinated to get back to a normal way of life and to stop the spread.”

#VaccinatedToSaveLives: “Compassion is one of Augusta University’s values. One of the most significant ways you can show compassion at the moment is to get vaccinated. We are at a unique point in history where the return to our pre-COVID activities requires an individual contribution from each and every one of us.”
