Since the Brigham’s COVID-19 Employee Vaccination Program launched on Dec. 17, thousands of members of the Brigham community have received their vaccine, with more doses administered every day. For many, getting their shot is a momentous occasion — one of excitement, relief and hope amid the pandemic. Many of our staff and faculty wanted to share their experience. Here are some of the photos and stories they’ve posted on Twitter.

Prakriti Gaba, MD, a clinical fellow in Cardiovascular Division, and her colleagues celebrated the holidays a bit differently in 2020 by rolling up their sleeves together to receive the vaccine.

One of the reasons vaccines are available today is because of the tireless work of researchers from the Brigham and beyond, including Lindsey Baden, MD, director of the Center for Clinical Investigation, and his team.

Zara Cooper, MD, gave a shout out to everyone who had contributed to the vaccine’s development and systemwide rollout.

For Nathan Connell, MD, MPH, an assistant professor in the Hematology Division, the vaccine is another layer of protection against COVID-19.

On January 12, the Brigham reached a big milestone when Susan Botsch, a primary care nurse manager, received the Brigham’s 10,000th COVID-19 vaccine.

Sarah Hofmann, a research fellow in Rheumatology, Inflammation, and Immunity expressed her gratitude to be receiving her first dose.

Erlande Jean-Louis, MBA, a senior manager in Central Equipment Surgery, shared why getting the COVID-19 vaccine was so important to her.

And Aimee B. Milliken, PhD, RN, interim executive director of the Ethics Service, gave three compelling reasons why she chose to get the vaccine.

The vaccine offered peace of mind to Rachel Beaver, RN, a staff nurse in the Apheresis Service.

Marinos Sotiropoulos, MD, a research fellow in the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases, offered this toast on the occasion of his vaccination.
