Senior Homes Get Their First Round of COVID Vaccine

EUREKA, Calif. (KIEM) – Today, the seniors at the Timber Ridge senior home in Eureka received their first dose of the Pfizer vaccine.

There will be a little more than 100 seniors receiving their vaccinations, and not a single person has turned down the vaccine.

Senior at Timber Ridge, Sylvia Marshall, says, “I don’t have any concerns. I just hear that it’s going to hurt a little bit maybe, but to me that’s part of it.”

After receiving their vaccinations, the seniors get a syringe full of M&M’s and a can of Crush soda to show that they are crushing COVID one shot at a time.

A sweet treat because the process of getting the vaccine has been a long and patient journey, as the vaccines were first promised back in December.

Despite the wait, Chief Operating Officer of the senior home, Larona Farnum, says, “I’m not complaining because I think there are a lot of people in the United States, if not the world, that don’t have this opportunity so I am ecstatic. I’m hoping that with this there will be change in some of our regulations that will allow a little more openness, a little more visitation.”

After receiving the vaccinations, the senior homes must still follow social distancing rules and limit visitations from family members.

 However, it offers a glimmer of hope that it can all change in the near future.
