“It is a shared responsibility if I can do something to help protect somebody else,” he said.

“I’m going to share a secret I’ve never spoken before. I’m immunocompromised. I have multiple sclerosis.”

“So I’m grateful you’re all vaccinated. I’m grateful my employer says all of these amazing people who work on the floor, who came in here for the last 18 months when we were doing this, are vaccinated now that we have vaccines,” he continued.

“I worry about bringing it home to my 10-year-old son who can’t get a vaccine.”

“I don’t like the government telling me what to do. I don’t like my boss telling me what to do. In this case, it’s important.”
