Dr. Lee Gets Vaccinated


There is a lot being said about the safety of the vaccine, and I’d be lying if I wasn’t a little worried. I don’t know if this helps anyone make their decision or not, but I used to work in vaccine research. Not the guy who’d take mystery pills for skateboard money; but a lab coat wearing scientist. There’s risk in all treatment options. There’s risk in everything. Heck, you can even die from drinking too much water. So why am I doing it? There’s nothing more in this world I hate more than the middle airplane seat, but there’s nothing more in the world I want to do right now than sit in the middle airplane seat. I’ve read the research (published, not Facebook) and I do believe this to be the course of action that will get life back to normal.

I’m not doing this for me. I’m not in any of the ‘danger’ categories. But I have lots of close contact with lots of different people. The Governor and other leaders have asked us, healthcare providers, to lead the way. Between working to keep people out of surgery and away from Urgent Care or the hospital for pain; we also keep the roadways safe by providing DOT exams along with drug and alcohol testing. I am also doing my part to keep you safe by taking one in the arm, I hope it’s the arm.
