Rosalie Lane was the first to write her name on the list when she heard that residents 70 and older could receive the vaccine. The delivery of the Pfizer vaccine to protect against COVID-19 was given by the mobile vaccine clinic team from UCHealth Memorial Hospital on Wednesday.
“We’ve been very lucky, and we’re probably one of the luckiest ones because we’re first. We can’t ask for anything more than that. I’m so excited, I haven’t stopped talking since I heard about it yesterday.’’ ~Rosalie Lane
UCHealth COVID-19 mobile vaccine clinic is an initiative aimed at providing vaccines to adults who are age 70 and older, in accordance with guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The clinics are designed to serve adults who have difficulty getting to a UCHealth clinic, either because of a disability or transportation challenges.
Chris Bianca, senior director of oncology services and a member of the mobile vaccine team, said the clinics are designed to serve adults who have difficulty getting to a UCHealth clinic, either because of a disability or transportation challenges.
Resident Eva Hoeb was also eager to get her shot. As the wife of a career Air Force man, she said she’d received many vaccinations in her lifetime.
“I think everybody should be getting the shot,’’ Hoeb said. “It’s going to help end it (the pandemic) if everybody takes the shot and wears their masks and doesn’t get out with all the crowds. I think it will help end this, yes.’’ ~ Eva Hoeb
