I contracted Covid-19 earlier this year. Although I had a mild case of the disease, I wouldn’t wish the experience on anyone else. To this day, I tend to have a hard time when walking up the stairs from the park to the Rector’s Office. When the opportunity to get vaccinated came up, I didn’t hesitate. I believe that medicine is at such a high level today that there is no need to wait twenty years to accurately test the effects of a vaccine. My first thought was that with the vaccine, I’ll be able to travel again. One by one, other reasons came up, too: I have children and want them to live a “normal” life – go to school, play sports, have fun. Or, I want to be able to visit my parents without putting them in danger. And I want to teach full-time again, because it is the personal contact with students that I enjoy the most in my work (even if it can be annoying sometimes). I’m getting vaccinated because I want to live and I want to let others live.
