I think I would I take it, I havent done much research as to side effects or whats in it but I have friends in the medical field and theyve all taken it. My mother recently overcame breast cancer and my grandma has been diagnosed with lung cancer so I think it would put my family at ease, and if I hopefully get into the firefighting field I would have to get it anyways. So I think it would help give my parents and family peace of mind for my safety, and make it less worrisome for me especially with dealing with patients in the future. Overall I think it would be more beneficial to take it now more than to not.  Update: It depends on the purpose of the booster shot. If its in relation to the original code for the virus probably not as I dont see the point. If its for the Delta variant Id be more likely.

“I’ve always been an online, gadget,  electronic type of person so I wasn’t into  reading paper, books, newspapers etc…so  everything I would do was online. Sometimes  instead of watching the news I will go online  and read it instead. If I see the MATC Times  on campus I’ll pick it up and read it. I used to  work at the downtown campus and we had a  Times stand right outside our office so I would  read it whenever it came out. I would read it  cover to cover even if the article didn’t pertain  to my interest, I would still read it just because  it was there and I saw it.”
