"I looked at the potential odds of catching the virus, and the illness that currently exist in my life, and asked myself, 'ventilator or vaccine?' It seemed like a no brainer for me."

- Chrystal Barnes, Director of Imaging at Emory University Hospital Midtown

"I’m proud to be one of the first few front line workers to receive the vaccine, and I encourage many others to receive it. I’m happy to start to see a light at the end of the tunnel that is COVID."

- Ashley Duerr, Technologist

"This photo is of me (with the glasses) and a coworker of mine right after we finished our second dose of the vaccine. We went together since we didn’t want to go alone and that made the process a lot more fun! We got the vaccine because we wanted to protect not only ourselves but our loved ones. We are grateful for the opportunity to be some of the first to receive the vaccine!"

- Charis Haugen, MRI Technologist

"Receiving the COVID vaccine is very important to me to ensure I help minimize risk to my patients, co-workers, family, and friends. The immunocompromised and elderly community are very important to me, and I am thankful to play an active part in eradicating this virus. I am hopeful that the vaccine will get us one step closer to a free and open lifestyle again."

- Meredith Naylor, Ultrasound Sonographer

"I'm excited for the opportunity to receive the vaccine. It is a source of relief and comfort in knowing that I have a source of protection, if ever exposed to COVID."

- Ashley Wise, RT(R), X-Ray Technologist

Tracy Powell, MSN, ANP-BC, Chief Advanced Practice Provider (APP)
