Allentown, PA- On Wednesday, January 13th, 2021, Lehigh County Executive Phil Armstrong joined County Commissioner Dan Hartzell and Cedarbrook Administrator and Director Jason Cumello in receiving the first dose of the COVID-19 Pfizer vaccine. The vaccine was administered at Cedarbrook Senior Care & Rehabilitation in Allentown on the first day of their vaccination clinics.
“We are here to show important it is to get this shot,” County Executive Armstrong said, “Instead of just saying it is important we are going to roll up our sleeves, get the shot, and show everybody that we’ve been waiting for this so that we can get back on the road to normalcy. We are hoping that everyone will follow our example and get the vaccine when it is their turn.”
Cedarbrook resident Jean Larison also participated and received her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine, hoping to encourage fellow residents to do the same.
In partnership with Walgreens, Cedarbrook Senior Car & Rehabilitation in Allentown has begun its first round of clinics to administer the Pfizer vaccine. Vaccinations are scheduled to take place on a staggered schedule in order to ensure that residents and staff have the opportunity to get vaccinated.
