Between the third and fourth weeks of January 2020, all six Bethesda independent living communities held clinics to administer the first of two doses of COVID-19 vaccine to residents and staff.

Though the vaccine is not mandatory for residents, many were eager and excited to receive their first vaccine. A second shot will be administered at a later date for all who received their first.

Check out scenes from the event in the gallery below.
