GoochlandCares vaccinates clients

In coordination with the Chickahominy Health District, GoochlandCares is vaccinating approximately 100 clients per week. “On February 11, we began with clients 75 years old and up. Now we are now beginning to vaccinate eligible clients 65 years and up,” says Adina Keys, Clinic Director. Staff and extra volunteers are helping with scheduling appointments, parking, registration, inoculations, and monitoring clients post-vaccine. Sally Graham, executive director says, “It’s logistically challenging, but we are thrilled to get these clients, some of our most vulnerable neighbors, vaccinated.”

One client, Frances Childers, said, “I’m so happy. I just know I’m going to cry!” And she did.

Vaccinations will continue until all eligible GoochlandCares clients and other high-risk Goochland residents referred by the Health District, have received both shots. “We expect to have 500 at-risk adults fully vaccinated by mid-April,” says Director Keys.
