Vaccinations for Volunteers and Front Line Staff

wall of reasons for wanting the vaccine

The call came early in the week from Anne Carpenter, Director of Community Engagement for Mission Health. They had a batch of Johnson and Johnson vaccines and wanted our assistance in getting them to front-line workers by the end of the week (March 11 and 12). We jumped at the opportunity to help. 

By the end of the week, 100 front-line staff members representing 23 local organizations and businesses got their vaccinations. They now have peace of mind to continue their efforts to serve others. 

One community volunteer, Janice, who has been on the front line of relief efforts at the food distribution site at Montmorenci United Methodist Church had this to say: 

Money cannot buy happiness - but a J&J Covid vaccine can! I had no idea that a feeling of euphoria would wash over me as I left the vaccine site with that vaccine in my arm. From the beginning of this strange and often awful year, you have stepped up and then gone one more step every time you have been called upon. I am involved with other groups as a volunteer and while many sent out notices to let us know that we could register for the vaccine - YOU went out and got us in line. Amazing!
