Children: 10 years old
Henry works full-time at a local grocery store stocking shelves. His job is essential, and he was needed to work during the COVID pandemic. Due to vaccination age guidelines, he was not able to receive his first 2 COVID shots until 3/2021. When it was time to get his booster shots Henry tested positive for the COVID virus and had symptoms. Due to the infection, Henry was not able to work for ten days which resulted in a loss of pay for he and his child and he struggled to get by financially.
After Henry got the initial COVID vaccinations it was time for him to get the booster shots, but he did not think it was necessary since he had already had the virus. Unfortunately, Henry contracted COVID a second time and was once again without work for another ten days which put a significant strain on he and his son. All the while Henry just kept thinking in his head “I wish I would have listened to the recommendations and gotten the booster shots.” While there is no guarantee he knew there were options that may have prevented the illness a second time.
