Well, we finally have a vaccine for COVID-19! Clients (and staff) went to the Northeast Regional Office on February 27th and March 17th to receive their Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Each program had their own time slot to go to the NERO. Amber R. gave everyone the lowdown as to what was going to happen. Then, clients and staff were greeted by Heather G. where they got screened and asked a series of questions. Then, Sara S. called everybody one by one into the training room. Some pharmacists from Walgreens (Thank you Walgreens!) asked us some more questions, then a pharmacist gave each client and staff member their round of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Then once they get bandaged up, there were snacks waiting to be eaten! After that, clients and staff waited for 15 minutes until Amber R. told us we were good to go! Special shout out to Walgreens, Amber R., Danielle L., Heather G., Amy P., Kendra, and everybody in the Northeast Region for doing their part by getting the COVID-19 vaccine. We are all in this together!
