“It’s been a long road since the start of the pandemic, and I feel very reassured in being able to get this vaccine today,” said Susan.

“When the founding physicians of Prevea Health came together 25 years ago, they made a commitment to care for the health of our communities,” said Dr. Ashok Rai, President and CEO, Prevea Health.

’25’ was a popular number to honor both Prevea Health’s 25th anniversary and the milestone of 25,000 first doses given, Prevea Health asked Sherry Lemerond, a registered nurse and trained vaccinator of 25 years at Prevea Health, to administer the 25,000th first dose to Susan.
