COVID Vaccine Booster Shots: How the COVID-19 Booster Shot Got Me Featured on Good Morning America by Beth Dixon
Weeks ago I was approached to be interviewed for a segment on Good Morning America discussing booster shots for the COVID-19 vaccine. The reason? I had received a booster shot on September 3, 2021, and happened to tweet that I received it and was thankful for science.
In a true example of “you never know who is looking at your social media accounts,” a producer from GMA sent me a direct message on Twitter, asked me if I wanted to share my experience without any “gotcha” questions, and within 20 minutes I was in a Zoom call sharing my thoughts!

A few of you may be wondering how a 33-year-old woman could have gotten the booster shot so early. A few years ago I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, and the medication I take suppresses my immune system, making me immunocompromised. In my interview I shared why I qualified, my thoughts on the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) limiting who can get the third shot of Pfizer/Moderna and what my message would be to all of those still wondering if the vaccine is right for them.
I’ll share my thoughts here: I believe in scientists. I trust my various doctors, all of whom agreed this was right for me. I understand that my immune system doesn’t operate in the same capacity as people with “normal” functioning immune systems. I also believe that the best way to protect yourself, your family and your greater community is to listen to the medical and science communities. Please explore peer-reviewed research or valid sources and don’t listen to Facebook memes, regardless of whichever “side” of the political spectrum you find yourself in.
One final thought: if you trust the medical community to take care of you if you get sick, listen to them BEFORE you get sick.
