Last week, our providers and staff were approved to start getting their COVID-19 vaccine. Like many, we have been hoping and waiting for a vaccine. We feel grateful that we have this opportunity now to help protect our patients, community, and loved ones even more. Our providers share thoughts on their experience getting the first dose of the vaccine. One dose down, one more to go!
Lactation Consultant, Winn Holly-“Today I had my first dose of the COVID vaccine. It is hard to put into words how much this means. The pandemic is far from over but with the vaccine, hope is given and a light at the end of a long tunnel is finally within reach. I can’t wait for everyone to receive theirs.”
Dr. Peter Reed– “I did not realize until I got the invitation to schedule my visit what it would mean to me – it brought tears to my eyes. This year has been marked by loss – loss of lives, loss of connections, loss of time – and I have mourned that loss. This vaccine feels like the beginning of the end of this painful period, mild arm pain notwithstanding.”
Nurse Practitioner, Jennifer Siebold– “After months of hearing about the vaccine and patiently waiting for it, it was hard to believe that I was sitting down to get my shot. I felt grateful and was happy to do my small part in keeping my community healthy.”
