First Shot Given In Otsego County

MODERNA VACCINE ARRIVES

First Shot Given

In Otsego County

Kelly Rudd, Bassett Healthcare Network’s chief of pharmacy, administers the first anti-COVID inoculation in Otsego County a few minutes ago to Dr. Lewis Brinton IV, Fly Creek, an emergency-room doctor at Little Falls Hospital. It was a double-first: the first shot administered in the county, and the first Moderna vaccine given to Bassett’s Tier One workers, 350 of whom received the Pfizer vaccine in Utica and Elmira over the weekend.   The other five people to receive the vaccination in Bassett’s Clark Auditorium this morning were Keith Velasco, Milford, nursing associate; Eddie Cook, Fly Creek, housekeeping; Suzanne Evans, Cooperstown, surgical resident; Liz Burns, Oneonta, R.N., and Dr. Travis Hodgdon, Cooperstown, critical care physician.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
