Talking about getting her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, Katy said:

Before my COVID-19 vaccine I was a little anxious and scared to have the injection done.

I had my support worker there to help me with my anxiety and she was able to help keep me calm.

My support worker told me to look away so I wouldn’t see the needle and was chatting to me. This helped me to relax.

After having my 1st vaccine, I bought some arts and crafts to give me something to look forward to!
