Joy was in the air Monday at the Naples Senior Center.
Stennett Johnson joined 99 other seniors on Monday getting their booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
For Johnson, it is a dose of freedom. “It’s life-changing for me now I’m going to be able to go into Publix or into Walmart without fear now that I have the third shot.”
President and CEO of the Naples Senior Center Dr. Jaclynn Faffer said seniors are cautiously optimistic that the pandemic is coming to an end and demand for the third dose is high.
“When the shots were approved, we began getting phone calls from the people we gave shots to in the past, and the calls increased by the day. And in one day alone, we got over 32 calls. So at that point, we reached out to the health department,” said Faffer.
