Dr. Jaclynn Faffer led the charge for getting area seniors vaccinated
by Clay W. Cone
In her role as President/CEO of the nonprofit Naples Senior Center, Dr. Jaclynn Faffer knew that something had to be done to help Collier County’s most vulnerable population.
It was mid-January and the much-anticipated COVID-19 vaccine started to roll out. Yet thousands of seniors couldn’t get access to the lifesaving shot, particularly those age 80 and older and who lacked the technology needed to book an appointment with the state.
Dr. Faffer met with County Commissioner Penny Taylor and explained that local seniors were having a tremendous challenge accessing the COVID-19 vaccine in our community.
