“It’s amazing. It feels good to be protected.” — ICU RN Fern Marusiak.

“Getting the vaccine means less chance for me to get infected and to infect other people,” — Huan Zhang, a respiratory therapist at the Queen Elizabeth II Hospital in Grande Prairie.

“This vaccine is like a light at the end of the tunnel.” — Tyler Mckitrick, a registered nurse at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
