Two fraternal twins from Newburgh, Indiana, celebrated their 12th birthday on Tuesday by receiving their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Brothers Austin and Isaac Paul turned 12-years-old on Tuesday, and the COVID-19 vaccine topped the short list of things they wanted for their birthday.
The boys were excited to get vaccinated, especially since they received their shots from their mom, who serves as a lead pharmacist at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville's COVID-19 vaccine clinic.
"Now I'm halfway there to getting my second vaccine which, then if I get COVID, it would most likely keep me out of the hospital," Austin told 44News. "I know a friend of mine got it and he was in the hospital and I heard how he was, and that didn't sound that good."
"Don't be afraid of the needle, because that's nothing," Isaac added. "So if that's what you're only afraid of come get your shot."
Like Austin and Isaac, anyone who's 12-years-old is currently eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in Indiana.
