”It feels like a superpower, so I can’t wait for anyone who wants one to get it because I really think it’s going to bring us back to normal life.

”Fitzroy tells Action News Jax it works. Especially after she says she was exposed to someone who needed up being Covid-19 positive and didn’t get sick.”

Physically I feel great and emotionally I feel great,” says Fitzroy.

She tells Action News Jax she understands why people are nervous. She was never one to get the flu vaccine herself.”

I was too afraid to get the flu vaccine but I just wanted to do something to help with this.”And she says she is grateful she did.

“It’s not the virus. It’s new technology and you’re not infected with anything and it works. That’s all I can say is that it works.”
