After more than a year, we can finally see the light at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic tunnel.

Although vaccines are becoming more widely available and national COVID-19 infection numbers are trending in the right direction, many people are beginning to feel worn down. This burnout — due to ongoing fear, uncertainty and stress — may make it hard for people to feel like continuing to wear masks and practice social distancing. Experts warn, however, these steps are more critical now than ever, with the end of the pandemic in sight.

Watch the video below to hear the message Michelle Aquino, DO, an internist at Baptist Health, has for those experiencing so-called COVID-19 fatigue as we enter the home stretch in the fight against the virus.

At Baptist Health, we want to help keep our community informed about COVID-19. For more information about COVID-19 vaccines as they become more widely available to the public, visit For questions about COVID-19 symptoms, call 904.302.5050.
