In February of 2020, Lynn Tanuvasa, 42, received the news she was hoping not to hear: the colonoscopy she'd just had showed that she had colon cancer. Then, just a few days later, Tanuvasa received even more life-changing news: she was pregnant.

"When she [Lynn's mother] was first having symptoms, my mom didn't know what it was. Then when she found out, it was too late to cure. So I knew that, even though I was young, I needed to get checked not just for myself, but for my family and especially for my kids." https://www.multicare.org/news/diagnosed-with-colorectal-cancer-while-pregnant/ With three vaccines now approved for use in the United States, rumors about the relative effectiveness of the three vaccines may be causing some people to try to wait for the "right one."

Other groups will be added as we receive more vaccines.
