Healthcare workers confident in the COVID-19 vaccine

HUMBOLDT COUNTY, Calif. (KIEM)- The COVID-19 vaccine has been approved and distributed throughout the country including Humboldt County.

At first, there was some skepticism about the COVID-19 vaccine because of how quickly it was created, tested and distributed.

After doing some research on how the vaccine works and actually getting the vaccine, a lot of healthcare workers have fewer concerns. 

“As far as healthcare workers, I mean, I feel like everybody that I’ve talked to have gotten the vaccine or is getting the vaccine in a future date,” said Staff Nurse at St. Joseph Hospital Mario Monte.

Some of health care workers we talked to said part of the reason for their skepticism was how fast the covid-19 vaccine was given the green light.
