Wright Memorial Hospital reports the first administration of the COVID-19 vaccine was Monday to a healthcare worker.
Darrin Moulin is a registered nurse in the emergency department and received the first COVID-19 vaccination at Wright Memorial in Trenton. Staff have been preparing for the day and employees were described by a spokesman as “eager to get in line”.
The first batch of vaccines received from the state of Missouri will go to front-line workers, protecting caregivers so they can continue to care for the patients.
In a statement, Moulin said he took the vaccine because he’s ready for things to get back to normal, and the vaccine should help get there faster.”
