Northern Inyo Healthcare District physician, Dr. Stacey Brown, gave the first COVID-19 vaccination for the age 65 and up population group to Wayne Martin of Bishop on Thursday afternoon, January 14.
This was a very personal moment for Martin, who explained that his wife Margy had come down with COVID about six months ago. Martin described the lingering effects on his wife as “just terrible.” He went on to call the vaccine “extremely important for even those who don’t get very sick initially as the after effects can be very devastating. This vaccine is so important for the entire country.”
