NEMG employees get vaccinated to crush COVID

Have you gotten, or do you plan to get, the COVID-19 vaccine? Tell us what motivated you to take that step.

“One of the most effective ways we can end the COVID pandemic is for as many people as possible to be vaccinated against COVID in addition to social distancing, hand hygiene and masking. At a time when over 350,000 Americans have perished from COVID, we now have a highly effective vaccine with comparatively few adverse effects, especially in comparison with effects of becoming sick with COVID. I highly recommend the vaccine to all those who are eligible.”

- Prathibha Varkey, MBBS, President and CEO, NEMG

“Getting vaccinated was the best way to start 2021. We are in this together, so let’s Crush COVID-19!”

- Sonia Stavens, RN, NEMG Family Medicine

“I encourage everyone to get the COVID-19 vaccine. If you get vaccinated, you’ll be protected even though the virus may still be in the community. If enough people get vaccinated, the virus will no longer be in the air; therefore we’re not only protecting ourselves, but also our families and the rest of the society for that matter. Imagine: we could all go back to our normal lives! It's worth the soreness in the arm.”

- Yi Hao Yu, MD, NEMG Endocrinology
