Over the past six months our OneWorld team has been working to vaccinate as many people in our community as possible. Every OneWorld clinic has been vaccinating patients and at “Shedquarters” our industrial tent at the Livestock Exchange Health Campus, we have been vaccinating patients and non-patients.
With each age group that has been approved for the vaccine, people have hurried to make appointments. “Shedquarters” has become a particularly happy place. After a year of being isolated patients are excited to get the vaccine. There is an air of hope, thinking about the possibilities, what it will be like to get back to normal in a post pandemic world.
Upon entering “Shedquaters” screeners help take care of the registration paperwork and direct individuals to their specific seat. A nurse then comes to them and administers the shot while another team member helps to schedule a follow up appointment and prepare a vaccine card.
“I really love my job. It makes me so happy to see the smiles of the patients. I think this brings hope to the people and it makes me really happy” Patricia Paniagua, OneWorld Patient
Everyone is so grateful for the opportunity to get vaccinated and thankful to the health care workers and all they have done to fight for the health of our community.
“I remember my first patient who received the vaccine” said Patricia “She was 92 and had been isolated for the past year, only able to see family through the window. Prior to Covid she provided housing for refugees in need who she called her ‘kids’. She told me we made her day because she was going to be able to be with family again and see “her kids” who she missed so much.”
Getting vaccinated is the most effective way to fight the spread of Covid-19. If you have not yet been vaccinated, please call 402-734-4110 to schedule an appointment.
