"I leave the door open as a possibility that there may be people with bad intentions behind these vaccines," nurse Melissa Anne told Insider.
"After months fighting this virus and witnessing so much loss, it was emotional to finally get the vaccine," said Meenal Viz. She encourages everyone she knows to get the shot.
"I want to be one of the first people to do it so I can pass on that comfort to someone else so that they will also be encouraged to go for it."
Pediatrician Hanita Oh-Tan said the vaccine felt less painful than a flu shot, and ICU nurse practitioner Cassie Lewis said she barely felt the shot.
