Vaccine arrives in Mendocino County

December 18, 2020 —  Uyen Thai, a pharmacist resident at Adventist Health Ukiah Valley, says she felt honored to be chosen for the historic role she played yesterday afternoon, when the first recipients of the first doses of the covid 19 Pfizer vaccine to hit the county rolled up their sleeves for her and her colleague Jenny Nyugen so they could be immunized in front of their friends, colleagues, and most of the English-speaking press corps of inland Mendocino County.

Dr Mark Luato, who serves as the EMS director, was the very first person in the county to be vaccinated. As promised earlier this week on the coronavirus update, he took it very well.
