Colorado Springs — Over the past two weeks, the number of people vaccinated daily in El Paso County has dropped significantly.

“We have the opportunity to protect ourselves and the people we live in, and we have the opportunity to make positive changes. I don’t think anything else should be resolved,” said the university, which is part of the regional campaign. Second grade Scarlett Pascual said. Encourage more people, especially those aged 20-50.

Community leaders, such as the restaurant industry, encourage people to vaccinate.

For Pasqual, a freshman at Sacramento State University was interrupted by a pandemic. She says she was one of the first people to leave campus and quickly realized how close the pandemic was to her family.

“My dad is a front-line healthcare professional,” she said. “It’s really hard for him to go home and see how the pandemic affects him. For a long time.”

The state of Sacrement, like some universities in Colorado, requires vaccinations for students to return to campus.

Pascaul agrees with this requirement. Her vaccine goes well and hopes to move people standing on the fence or hesitating to contribute little by little by mandating vaccination.

“We now have a chance to regain our lives. We don’t want to be on that side of the group because we don’t try to help the situation,” Pasqual said.
