AUSTIN (KXAN) — As vaccinations open up to more Texans on Monday with Phase 1C now eligible to get in line, a local teacher says her story illustrates why people should still take COVID-19 safety seriously.
Paige Crain says she tested positive for the coronavirus after getting her shots.
“There is this, this freedom and this joy that comes with getting vaccinated,” said Crain, who got her second Moderna shot in February.
The teacher says she started taking tiny liberties.
“I felt like for the first time in a year I could, you know, take a sip of water under my mask — which I wasn’t doing before,” she said.
