When Jenny Hesse signed off for the day from her job as a Peer Recovery Coach at the Garrett County Health Department in mid-December last year, she had no idea it would be five months before she would be able to make it back to work. That day was the beginning of a journey that Hesse hopes and prays nobody else will every have to endure.
“I never want to see anyone go through that, ever, ever, ever!” Jenny said of her near-death experience with COVID-19. Once unsure about getting the COVID-19 vaccine, Jenny got it as soon as her recovery allowed her to, and she’s now spreading the word. “If you can prevent this horrible illness by being a little uncomfortable for a day or two, why wouldn’t you? Just get it!”
