Last week, ESSC’s Child Development Services (CDS) in San Diego hosted a COVID vaccination clinic at a local site. CVS Health representatives were on-hand to deliver 56 shots to associates, including nine associates from Adult Day Services.
Previously, Adult Day Services (ADS) staff welcomed participants, associates and caregivers to their COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at the Brea Senior Center on Feb. 18. At that clinic a total of 214 associates, individuals we support and care providers were vaccinated. The vaccines were once again supplied by CVS Health for ESSC to distribute.
To date, over 933 vaccinations have been administered to associates, participants and their caregivers through clinics hosted at several ESSC locations and more clinics are being planned!
Below are photos from the vaccination clinics and thoughts from associates about the importance of being vaccinated.
Below are some of the Easterseals associates vaccinated at the clinic hosted by Child Development Services in San Diego.
Infant and Toddler Education Manager Rutu D.: I am getting the vaccine because I want to protect myself and everyone I come into contact with from the potentially dangerous effects of contracting COVID-19. I want to do my part to contribute to a community-wide decrease in COVID-19 positivity and hospitalization rates. I also want to be part of our community, state and country’s efforts to recover from the tragic health and economic losses we have sustained throughout this pandemic.
Home-Based Visitor Elizabeth G.: I want to keep my family, coworkers, and community safe!
Early Childhood Educator Julie P.: Although we will still need to mask up a while longer after the vaccine, this is a major step in getting us back to normal.
Early Childhood Education Manager Vianna R.: I’m doing my part to protect myself and to keep my family, coworkers and community safe. I’m also setting an example for other staff members.
