ARE YOU Vaccinated against COVID-19? WHY OR WHY NOT? On the advice of two doctors, like some other Oshawa residents, I cannot receive a currently approved vaccine due to a diagnosed autoimmune disease and side effects to other vaccines, but I hope that a suitable vaccine will become available and in the meantime continue to follow all guidelines public health and have regular rapid tests.
