We launch a new COVID-19 vaccine information campaign today for our staff, internally, and for our friends in the community here on Facebook. You’ll be hearing from a number of TidalHealth employees on not only why they got vaccinated but also how they felt after completing their second and final shot.

We know that a number of you could be “on the fence” and wanting to see how healthcare professionals (the first vaccinated) are doing a couple of days after finishing the vaccination process. We’re happy to provide that, we’re not sugar coating the responses and honestly passing along the information to you as told to us by our teammates here at TidalHealth.

We encourage you to speak with your physician or provider and become well educated on the subject of the COVID-19 vaccine so you can make an informed decision on vaccination when these clinics move into your communities in the coming months.
