People who are pro-vaccine can help by reacting with compassion, not judgement, doctor says
Brenda Lee Legault wasn’t ready to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
“I was hesitant,” Legault, 61, said. She and her husband decided they wanted to wait to see what happened as more people got the shot — but they were also alarmed by what they saw online.
“You’re hearing a lot of things on media and, you know, Facebook and stuff and you know, you’re seeing videos on YouTube and it’s kind of scary. So we were really unsure,” she said.
Legault, who owns a catering business with her husband in Cornwall, Ont., fell critically ill with COVID-19 in August. She was hospitalized for a month, including 24 days in the ICU.
