While she looks forward to getting her doses because she wants to protect others and doesn't want to get sick, she's mostly excited to get downtime when everyone is protected by vaccines.

She also reiterated that there's hope for this summer with everyone expected to get one dose by the end of June but she's looking forward to the fall when everyone is fully vaccinated and we can get back to some normalcy.
