personal health matter for me, and I intend to keep it that way.” “I’m going to be extra cautious about

have been associated with Kirk. He represents many of the principles that we hold dear and that we share
as a part of our work culture. We must, however, make assured that our messages regarding COVID
vaccine are consistent and unambiguous .”
