Two Vaccination Clinics Offer Protection from COVID-19
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
People in Selma and Dallas County had two opportunities — to protect themselves against COVID-19 Wednesday — as the number of cases in the area — continues to rise.
Sixty-five year old Eloise Johnson of Orrville has been vaccinated against COVID-19 — and though she hasn’t gotten a booster shot yet — she’s planning to.
“I don’t want to catch nothing, I want to be safe. I don’t want to die, I want to live,” she said.
Dallas County is experiencing a surge in COVID cases — due to the highly contagious omicron variant — in addition to the increased exposure — caused by family gatherings during the holiday season.
Tim Anderson is the Chief Nursing Officer at Vaughan Regional Medical Center in Selma.
Healthcare officials say — the un-vaccinated are the most at risk — from the potentially deadly virus.
Unlike his wife, Eloise — Alfonso Johnson — has never been vaccinated.
He says his faith in God to keep him safe — is the reason he hasn’t.
“He say, “I will preserve your going out and your coming in. I will protect you. No weapon that’s formed against you shall prosper.””
“If you walk with God that’s a beautiful thing,” said Eric Boone with the Christian Medical Health Initiative.
“But the reality of it is — if you break your leg, you’re going to go to you’re doctor. You can’t have it both ways.”
