The veteran WJXT anchor is encouraging others not only get the vaccine to protect themselves, but their loved ones too.

“I’m going to keep washing my hands and sanitizing because I don’t want to run the risk that I might pick up an Asymptomatic version of the virus and spread it to the people in my life.”
