Recently, Amy Roloff took to Twitter to ask her followers a question. Her post read, “It seems we’re coming out of Covid- slowly but surely but still a lot of unknown. I’m wondering – are you getting the vaccine when you can? Why or why not?”
Amy received an abundant amount of replies, with followers stating reasons for and against their answers.
One fan replied with, “Yes I got my first Vaccine on 2/21/21! Looking forward to my second on 3/21/21! I got the vaccine, because I feel in my heart that this will allow me to see my grandson ( he turned 16 on 1/31/21) first B’day missed in 16 years!”
Another commenter said, “Hmm. What science tho? This virus is very Nobel [sic] and unknown. No one knows the long term effects or any variable. Just like the vaccine. Science? Not fda approved yet. We will be science once enough people take it to see the effects.”
Yet another response stated, “The science behind the vaccine has been around for years. And there were tens of thousands who went through trials before the vaccines were given regulatory clearance. We know the side effects. They are minimal.”
The COVID-19 vaccine was authorized for emergency use in the U.S. in December 2020. From the CDC’s website: “the COVID-19 vaccination works by teaching your immune system how to recognize and fight the virus that causes COVID-19, and this protects you from getting sick with COVID-19.”
Some people with COVID-19 have only a mild illness, while others may get a severe illness with long-lasting effects or even die. There is no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you.
Amy’s followers replied
Amy doesn’t typically post on social media about topics other than her family, her cooking, and her shop, Amy Roloff’s Little Kitchen. Lately, Amy has been sharing a lot of posts on Instagram, but doesn’t use her Twitter account as often.
She recently has shared pics of her spending time with her grandson, Jackson, a trip to the beach with fiancé, Chris, and several cooking videos. Amy loves to cook, as evidenced on the show, Little People Big World, and was an impetus for her business ventures.
Amy was born with achondroplasia, the most common type of dwarfism, which affects bone growth, preventing the change of cartilage to bone. Amy has been fortunate to not have had any major complications stemming from her dwarfism.
