Getting vaccinated is the safe thing to do, says Dr. Gatta. ‘Similar to wearing a seatbelt.’

Dr. Prakash Gatta is a surgeon at MultiCare Health System in Tacoma. He contracted COVID-19 in March 2020. He’s since recovered and is fully vaccinated.

“I got vaccinated because I never want to get COVID again,” he said. “I’ve been given another chance. This is my opportunity to make a difference and advocate for responsibility.”

Dr. Gatta stresses the importance of getting vaccinated, even if you’ve had COVID-19. With virus variants spreading throughout the United States, the vaccine remains the safest and most effective way to protect yourself.

He compares getting vaccinated to something many of us do every single day to protect ourselves. 

“It is similar to wearing a seatbelt,” he said. “We wear a seatbelt, because we know it is the right thing to do.”
