Haliburton Highlands Health Services (HHHS) said residents of Hyland Crest Long-Term Care home received the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine Feb. 10. The first resident to receive the vaccine was Elizabeth (Betty) Inglis. Betty moved to Haliburton in 1946 to raise her family and became a very active member of the community. At 98, she is an avid lover of nature and conversation.
“The fact that this first round of vaccinations has been completed at Hyland Crest and Highland Wood has certainly helped lift the spirits of residents, staff, and families,” said Carolyn Plummer, president and CEO of HHHS.
“We know we must keep up our strict infection prevention and control measures, but we could all use this dose of hope.”
Dates for the second round of vaccinations for Highland Wood and Hyland Crest residents will be shared with families once that information is known.
