I got my vaccine 💉 today.
I can't live in fear of infecting someone else and the people I love. The best protection is vaccine and the fastest way to get back to normal. #HaveYourOpinion #MakeYourMove pic.twitter.com/qpbZFUT6cR

At the State Farm Arena I was grateful to receive the first dose of the COVID vaccine. In this critical time it is important to believe in the benefits of the vaccine and protect all of our love ones. I look forward to the second dosage and to a new chapter of our life. pic.twitter.com/hg2XxGsJGS
