Went to Blue Heron School this morning to get my booster shop for Covid. I would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers who took the time to show up so we can be protected in this fight against Covid. Was so happy to see a large turnout. We are so lucky to live in Jefferson County. THANK YOU HEALTHCARE WORKERS!
