Victoria Fire Department delivers COVID-19 vaccine to homebound seniors


PHOTO #1: Members of the Victoria Fire Department and volunteer registered nurse Megan Garcia prepare doses of the COVID-19 vaccine Friday for distribution to Victoria Meals on Wheels clients. The fire department partnered with Meals on Wheels to deliver 150 doses of the vaccine to homebound Victoria residents. Fire department employees assisting in the effort were Battalion Chief Tim Hunter, Captain Jennifer Dailey, Fire Medic Brandy Marek (team leader), Fire Medic Pamela Yanta, Fire Medic Gabriel Balcorta, Fire Medic Jorge Mora and Firefighter Spencer Craig. The distribution was part of a limited pilot program available to homebound Meals on Wheels clients who are 65 years old and older. The fire department is seeking ways to collaborate with community partners to distribute the vaccine to vulnerable residents, and the department will continue to pursue opportunities as more doses become available.
