The day that Kate Sherrod got vaccinated against COVID-19 was an emotional one.
"It was my first time around strangers in like a year," she said.
Sherrod is immunocompromised, which limits her ability to fight off infections. So she had been stuck at home during the first year of the pandemic. It also meant she was in one of the early priority groups for the vaccine. And after the first shot in March, Sherrod let herself imagine some of the things she'd do once she hit full immunity.
