Dear Seniors & Friends,

Judie Wang contacted us and asked if we'd provide a safe place to host a free COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic.  We met with her today and scheduled a clinic for

They will administer the first shot of the Pfizer vaccine.  The second shot will be administered 3 weeks from the 16th.  Everyone who needs a vaccination is free to come to the Senior Center to get their "poke".

If you have any questions, please let me know.  Arrangements were made with
