Amid Covid-19 vaccines being rolled out in various countries, there continues to be scepticism among people regarding the safety and side effects of the shots. In order to encourage people to get themselves vaccinated, US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez documented herself getting a Covid-19 vaccine and shared her experience on social media.
“I would never, ever ask you to do something I wasn’t willing to do myself,” she wrote in her Instagram post. “Yesterday, in accordance with national security protocols, Congress began to get vaccinated. I documented the entire process and am here to answer all of your questions to help you feel as comfortable as possible with your healthcare decisions,” she added.
