LINCOLN, Neb. (KMTV) — On Tuesday, the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department announced it was moving the COVID-19 risk dial back to yellow as cases began to trend up. Today in Lincoln, officials with Bryan Health provided an update along with a COVID patient who said she wishes she hadn't second-guessed the shot.
"I was in Syracuse when they ran the tests and I got it. My husband stepped out of the room to get a fresh pop and from that moment on, I've been completely alone going through this, with the exception of these wonderful people and I thank God for them. But it was probably that moment where I was thinking I could have saved myself and my family so much if I had gotten the immunization," said Shelly Wachter.
