TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Getting Vaccines To Homebound Seniors Becoming A Nice Trend Lately

TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD: Getting Vaccines To Homebound Seniors Becoming A Nice Trend Lately

With the Covid-19 vaccine rolling out across the country not everyone has the ability to get to a vaccination site, especially seniors.

Luckily there are now programs being used to get people vaccinated even if they can’t leave the house. Like 97-year-old Dorothy Loper from Bridgeport. Dorothy is a WWII Navy Veteran who was able to get her shot from the Bridgeport Fire Department along with health officials from the City of Bridgeport.

My grandfather who lives up in Massachusetts, also a WWII veteran, was able to get his shot at home as well through the same type of program. My cousin who works as a rapid response nurse at the nearby hospital was able to give him the shot. Which was pretty awesome.

If you know someone here in the Bridgeport area who may qualify for an at home vaccine you can get more info about setting it up by calling  203-576-7993. Stay safe!
