PAWTUCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — It’s been over a year since 12 News reporter Alexandra Leslie started working out of her Pawtucket apartment due to being high-risk for COVID-19, but that may not be the case for that much longer.
In March, Alexandra became eligible by the R.I. Department of Health to receive a COVID-19 vaccine due to her health condition, Cystic Fibrosis. The disease primarily affects the lungs and makes it difficult to breathe over time.
Tuesday morning, Alexandra shared her story about getting both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, why it was important to her, and what her plan will be moving forward.
