The post has a video thumbnail with blue shading overlaid. The top middle has “Get vaccinated with us!” in white text with rose background. In the video: A young woman with long blonde wavy hair is walking around and standing in a pharmacy for her COVID-19 and flu vaccination. She is wearing a dark blue dress with sunglasses.
Today, we will get vaccinated! Ready? Come on! [The young woman is waiting at the pharmacy’s check in desk.] Now, we’re waiting for insurance forms and cards to be reviewed. If you don’t have insurance, you still can get a free COVID-19 vaccine through the federal government. [The young woman is sitting in the waiting room.] Now, we’re waiting for my turn! You should sign up for your vaccine online if you can – many places allow you to schedule an appointment for your vaccine. Sometimes you will be required to fill out forms and provide information such as if you have any allergies to the shots, your current address, and so on. [The pharmacist is giving the young woman her COVID-19 and flu shots.] Thumbs up! Thank you. [The young woman is standing in front of medication at the pharmacy.] I got two shots today for COVID-19 and flu. Yes – it's safe! The CDC recommends both shots at the same time because we have a tendency, as shown by research, to procrastinate. If we get one shot at one time, we are likely to postpone the second shot and forget. So, go ahead and get both shots at the same time! [The young woman is sitting in the car and shows her bandaid.] The CDC recommends that if you are high risk or have a weakened immune system, get your shots ASAP! For the general population, it’s recommended to get your shots by mid-October. Go get vaccinated NOW!
