This Jab’s For You: NJ Family Encourages COVID-19 Vaccination in Memory of Those Affected Dr. Steven Arsht and his wife, Marla, have launched a campaign to promote COVID-19 vaccination while honoring those lost to and deeply affected by the infection. Dr. Arsht, whose family has roots in Rockaway Township, started this initiative in memory of his brother-in law, Louis Sarrel , who succumbed to the effects of COVID-19 and passed away just after his 58th birthday in April 2020.
Dr. Arsht conceived the idea of This Jab’s for You as he sat for his COVID-19 vaccination, finding himself overcome with emotion as he thought of Louis. He thought to himself, ‘This jab’s for you, Louis,’ as he received his first inoculation, and a movement was born.
The mission of This Jab’s for You is to encourage vaccination for COVID-19 by memorializing those whom we have lost to the pandemic. The campaign hosts a website, Instagram account and Facebook page where people may post their vaccination photos and share stories of who they may be honoring when they get their ‘jab.’ For more information on this campaign, visit www.thisjabsforyou.com or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
