Sharon Kropp became the first resident at Pinecrest to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. 

"An exciting time for us all," said administrator Kevin Queen.

Heather Lucier, RPN, was assisted by nurse Virginia Lemay as they gave the first vaccine for COVID-19 earlier today.

The province said they'd have all long-term care residents vaccinated by Feb. 5, and health unit staff are confident they can meet that goal.
