A Shot of Hope

Together we’re stronger!
On Friday, January 15, MCC and Adventist Health partnered up for our very first public COVID-19 vaccine clinic, where we vaccinated local teachers. It was inspiring to see our school staff get a #shotofhope and take a giant step toward getting our kids back in the classroom.
Since it was the first time we did an event like this, we weren’t quite sure what to expect, but it went off without a hitch. Fort Bragg High School generously gave us the use of their gym, where there was plenty of room for parking, registration, vaccinations, and physical distancing for post-vaccine monitoring. It could not have gone better!
MCC’s Executive Director, Lucresha Renteria said, “MCC’s team truly delivered today. We got 300 school employees along the North Coast vaccinated.”
Huge thanks to our friends at Adventist Health for providing nursing staff and having an EMT on site, and to Fort Bragg Unified School District for handling the scheduling. It was an amazing team effort! Thank you to all who helped to make it happen.
