COVID-19 VACCINATION CHRONICLE

The information on this page is not a scientific study but a chronicle of the vaccination experience of Bro. Jedan Phillips, M.D.

Dr. Phillips is volunteering in the COVID-19 ward of a New York hospital and wants to "big up" the janitorial staff who clean every room multiple times daily regardless of how sick that patient is, or how dirty the room is. They do their jobs with no fear! Last but definitely not least, I want to big up the nurses! Imagine your parent is in a hospital today with covid, or any other medical condition, and they can not have visitors. The nurses manage the patients’ fears and the families’ concerns on top of all the other patient care duties that they are responsible for! It's been an honor to be part of the care team for these incredibly ill patients. Folks please, please wear your masks, sanitize, and social distance. After my shift I can go home and love up my family. I recognize how blessed I am. God bless y’all!
