She's now encouraging others from the Hudson Valley to do the same. "I think it means more to show everyone else that this is a pretty good vaccine, you should be able to trust it. You should be able to get the vaccine because it’s not just helping yourself but helping everyone else, so you’re being proactive in that sense.”
Kaseyan says she's also been reminding her friends and family who have been vaccinated of the importance of remaining diligent, continuing to social distance, and put safety first.
