Get your Covid-19 vaccine jab while you can
MS News extends our condolences to the family of the deceased. We hope they find the strength to get through this difficult period.
For the rest of us, this perhaps serves as a reminder of the importance of getting vaccinated, to protect us from developing serious symptoms as a result of a Covid-19 infection.
Since vaccinations are now available on a walk-in basis, we hope those who have not gotten their jabs would do so ASAP to protect themselves and their loved ones.
