‘What would you say to people who hesitate to get vaccinated?’


Armand Delgado

Los Angeles

“I say ‘Get it. What are you waiting for?’ The more people that get the shot, the faster we can get back to normal.  What have you got to lose?”

Rosemary Delgado

“Think about more than yourself. Especially the young people. They might not get it or they might not feel it, but they could have the COVID and give it to somebody else.”

Davon Howard

Baldwin Hills

“I know how they feel. I didn’t want to get the shot. … Then I thought, what the heck, we all gonna die of something. Might as well get it.”

Isaiah James

“I’m a veteran, so I know about conspiracies and the government and what people think. You’d be surprised how much of that stuff is true. But enough people have taken it that I’m going to take it, too.”
