Clinical Lab Assistant Manager Beverly Showes administers a vaccine for Eric Jordan, M.D., Medical Director of the Emergency Department. He was the first physician to receive a COVID-19 vaccination Tuesday morning.
A special ultra-low freezer was specifically purchased for this vaccine. It is kept between -80 to -60 degrees C (-112 to -76 degrees F).
Jessica Bass, R.N., an ICU nurse who has been on the frontlines working with COVID-19 patients since March, was the first vaccine recipient.
