African American Vaccine PSA - Austin/Travis County


I’m getting the vaccination for my kids.

As we all know, COVID affects the body differently and so for me, I want to protect myself so I can live longer for my children. I am getting the vaccine because I care about my family and my community. My family is one of half a million families who have lost people to the virus. My mom is turning 80 years old this year and I miss her so much. I've not been able to see her. I am getting the vaccine for myself. I want to make sure that I am protected from the virus and I want to set the example for the Austin Fire Department and for the community. I am getting a vaccine for my wife, my kids and my co-workers. I'm an insurance agent and also civil rights organization president. We see a lot of people. I want to make sure that they're safe and that I'm safe. I'm getting the vaccine because I want to protect my community and set an example as well. It's been so tough over the last year and I know this is one of the first steps to getting back to normalcy. Once I got the vaccine the first thing I wanted to do was spend time with my friends, my family that I haven't been able to see in a while, break some bread, have a meal, get some hugs.....hugs! Take the shot. Take the shot. Take the shot. Take the shot. Take the shot. Take the shot. Take the shot. For your family. For your friends. For the community.
