Posted 6/29/21

Sunday, June 20th, 2021 was Father’s Day. A celebration for all dads everywhere. It was also a moment in history for the Segura-Gaxiola family — the second COVID vaccine for my daughter, Elizabeth Grace. Now everyone in the family would have our second shot and be fully vaccinated.

Letter to the Editor: Family gets vaccinated in Glendale

Posted

Sunday, June 20th, 2021 was Father’s Day. A celebration for all dads everywhere. It was also a moment in history for the Segura-Gaxiola family — the second COVID vaccine for my daughter, Elizabeth Grace. Now everyone in the family would have our second shot and be fully vaccinated.

We are all good and healthy, and the vaccine was a monumental experience for all of us. It was fun, and we purposely had all of our vaccines done at the Arizona Cardinals Stadium and the Coyotes Arena in Glendale. It felt like we were part of something really cool, like a sporting event.

In the past months, everyone we met, and was involved in the vaccinations, was really great. They were smiling, happy, helpful, polite and informed. All four events were over the top, quick and seamless, from start to finish. I felt great pride in doing my part, being a part, and being safe. My family and I can LIVE now. No more masks. Hugs if I want. I feel free, and kind of amazing.

We as a family, chose to get our shots. There were never the questions, do we get vaccinated? What are the side effects? Neither one of us have had a reaction. Thank goodness, knock on wood. The only thing I had, was a sore arm. Elizabeth, my daughter was a little tired and Miguel, my husband, was hungry. He’s always hungry.

Long story short. If you are someone who wants or is thinking about getting vaccinated, just do it! It’s easy, and you can get a vaccination at Walmart these days. But seriously, you can also visit the Arizona Department of Health Service’s website at https://podvaccine.azdhs.gov/ to book an appointment or call 602 542-1025 for more information.

We did!
