Our Ulster County Day Community Opportunities Program recently had a group vaccination adventure and it went amazingly well! Staff members split their program participants into smaller groups to ensure safety and social distancing during travel to the vaccination site.

To make their experience even more special, after each person was vaccinated, the staff rang a bell in celebration. Click here to watch a brief video highlighting the experience.

Program manager Heather Henderson said, “It was pretty emotional just realizing the importance of what we were all doing together.” Once everyone was vaccinated, the group went out for a socially distanced lunch. They had not seen each other in person for the better part of a year and the joy on their faces and in their actions was priceless! Everybody did great ordering and remembered to get their receipts. They talked about how much they have missed DCOP and how strongly they look forward to everything opening back up again.
