Erin Steward, an administrative assistant in Dawson Creek, shares a smile after getting her COVID-19 vaccine.

There are many reasons why Northerners have chosen to get their COVID-19 vaccine. For some, it’s a public duty; for others, it’s a way to protect their loved ones.

For Dawson Creek resident Erin Steward there were two reasons she got her shot

“I felt very lucky to have received my vaccine, as many are still waiting, and I feel like it’s a light at the end of this very long dark tunnel that this past year has been.” 

“I also did it to support my fellow NH co-workers… the nurses, the physicians, housekeeping staff… everyone! We need to do our part to protect those most vulnerable, and I am happy that this can be my small contribution to that.”
