RICV Board Member Rebecca Donabed took her turn and received the COVID-19 vaccine. As a leader in the Disability Community, Rebecca knows the COVID-19 vaccinations are important. “It’s an extra help for our bodies to fight off the virus quickly and effectively,” she shared.

Concerning hesitancy in getting vaccinated, Rebecca believes there was concern when the vaccines were in the testing phase. “People with disabilities weren’t even thought of, and there were a lot of unanswered questions in general,” said Rebecca.

According to Rebecca, she is glad she received the vaccine and reports she had a minor reaction. “I want to get back to may normal life. I’m a very active person in my community and COVID just stopped it.”

It's your turn! Visit depgresno.org or call 888-468-9115 to schedule your appointment. Transportation and in-home vaccination assistance is available.
