Seniors & staff at Jacksonville nursing home receive second dose of COVID-19 vaccine

Jacksonville, FL. — Executive director of River City Rehabilitation Center, Connie Bend, tells Action News Jax about 70 seniors and staff at the nursing facility received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on Tuesday.

Bend says a majority of today’s vaccine recipients got their second dose.

The vaccines were administered by Walgreens.

Action News Jax reported in mid-December when River City Rehab Center became the first long term care facility in the state to receive COVID-19 vaccinations through a government partnership with CVS and Walgreens.

Bend says she anticipates 25-30 seniors and staff will receive first and second doses on Wednesday.
