BANGOR — Northern Light Health released a music video last week to the tune of Pat Benetar’s classic “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” in an effort to raise awareness and encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
“With this video, it is one more creative way of conveying an important message. Even if 10 or more people get vaccinated then that’s what matters. Ninety percent of COVID patients in the hospital are not vaccinated,” said Matt Weed, senior vice president for Northern Light Health.
According to Northern Light Health, 90 percent of COVID patients who are in the hospital are not vaccinated.
Both Sen. Susan Collins and Gov. Janet Mills appeared in the video and urged everyone to get vaccinated.
