COVID-19 Vaccine Spotlight: Age is Just a Number
Filomena Doyle is GRMDC's oldest patient to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. At 101 years young, she wanted to protect herself and her family, despite advice she was given. "They told me that at my age, I shouldn't get it, you know. I didn't feel any different afterward," Filomena said. Dr. Hamrick was happy to administer her shots and visited her in her home. "I felt the attention everyone gave her was phenomenal. The set up was great ... Roslindale couldn't have done a better job," said Filomena's daughter Beverly. We wish many more years of health and happiness to Filomena!
"I did it because it's the right thing to do and I'm glad others are doing it too," said Paul Janjigian. The day Paul received his first dose, he was so happy that he danced with GRMDC Operations Manager Linda Munger. When he returned to receive his second shot, he thanked the staff and said he thinks GRMDC is "the best because I get the best care and everyone is so nice." Thank you for your kind words, Paul. We are delighted to see you happy, health and dancing with joy.
