Why Get the Shot? Find the Reasons on the COVID-19 Wall

By on 04/21/2021

Einstein staff members started lining up back in the winter at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia’s Gouley Auditorium to get vaccinated against the virus that causes COVID-19.

They were happy to protect themselves and others – and they proclaimed their reasons on sheets of paper preprinted with the words “I got vaccinated for …” They had their photos taken, or took selfies. Some put them up on social media, #IGotTheShot.

And then someone decided to go old school and put their testimony on the wall. More of them followed. The message board grew to the left, to the right, up and down, a celebration of connections and caring. Some took another step and recorded videos about their experiences.

In the interactive image below, we share some of our staff members’ comments. Just click on the arrows to watch the videos or hover over the plus signs to read the messages.  

Einstein Healthcare Network is providing the COVID-19 vaccine to the community.  Check the vaccine page on our website for instructions on how to make an appointment.
