(ABC 6 News) - A group of residents at The Waters on Mayowood Senior Living received their first dose of COVID vaccines Tuesday.
About 300 doses of the Moderna vaccine were given. Vaccinating more than 99% of residents, and more than 50% of staff. The second dose will be given in February.
"I would probably recommend it to people," said Elaine Jacobsen, a resident at The Waters on Maywood Senior Living.
"Because maybe we can get over this, and we can all be safer."
Marlene Davis, another resident at the facility, shared her excitement about getting the vaccine.
"I have been looking forward to this day so much because I have great-grandchildren who live right here in town that I haven't seen since last Christmas."
The facility is starting to get back to a pre-pandemic life. Fitness classes are being offered again with limited class sizes and sanitation efforts. Visitors are also welcome, but there are limitations.
