“I am a nurse and I am vaccinated. “”Because it is the only solution. “”For my safety, for your safety: I got the vaccine.“
On Twitter, testimonials from vaccinated nurses abound since July 6 with the hashtag # NurseVaccinated.
Protect yourself and others
At the origin of this movement: Julien Martinez, nurse in Lyon, who published on July 6 a video entitled “Why did I decide to get vaccinated against covid?“.
He reveals the reasons which personally pushed him to be vaccinated: to protect himself, his relatives but also the patients and “contribute to the end of this epidemic“.
He also explains how the scientific data accumulated on anti-covid vaccines reassured him and finally calls for “do not make a mistake in the debate“.
As a caregiver, getting vaccinated helps convince the general public. We will achieve immunization coverage if we play the game together. Trust comes through our behavior. #nursevaccinated https://t.co/ZbK9OjuJAQ

“Don’t listen to the fakenews”
Then Vincent Lautard, also a nurse, in his turn publishes a video in which he explains why the vaccination of caregivers is today “essential“. But not only: he also seeks to”thwart propaganda“from some anti-vaccine caregivers.
“Do not listen to those, in the minority, who broadcast Fakenews all day long to scare you“he hammers.”Get vaccinated and campaign for vaccination“, he asks these colleagues.
After the video of @Martinez_J_ , it’s my turn to make a video to promote the #vaccination against the # COVID19. Protect ourselves and protect others, it is essential! # NurseVaccinated pic.twitter.com/VfAXguhPk5

The hope of ending the covid
Since then, the testimonials of caregivers, often supporting photos and videos, have multiplied on the social network. Everyone talks about their confidence in vaccination and their hope to finally get out of this health crisis and not to relive the horror they have experienced over the past 18 months.

I have been a nurse anesthetist and vaccinated since May 15, 2021. A single dose was enough for me because I had a rifled COVID at the end of January 2021.
I encourage you all to do it and for caregivers to invade networks #NurseVaccine # COVID19 #VaccineCovid pic.twitter.com/8essZSkqkR

I am a nurse and I am vaccinated. To protect myself and the patients and those around me. Vaccination is an individual and collective umbrella. This is what will allow you to have a serene social life.# Nurse vaccinated # NurseVaccinated

I am a nurse and I am vaccinated to protect myself and not to be a vector for others. I have been vaccinated because the efficacy of vaccination in eradicating certain infectious diseases has long been established. #NurseVaccinated #NurseVaccine
