The seniors at Park Towers in Pikesville got their second vaccine shot but a majority of them wouldn’t have been able to get the shots if those shots weren’t brought to them.

“I feel very grateful for the people that have gone to all the trouble to do this, it’s fantastic,” resident Mark Whitman said.

It’s something the seniors haven’t been able to experience in a very long time.

“It’s called freedom. I’m so happy to have been able to get the vaccine and I’m very grateful to Giant for coming here,” resident Shirley Cohen said.

Members of the Park Towers community in Pikeville received their second COVID-19 shot Wednesday, giving them a chance to live life again.

“I feel like I can come out to the supermarket again because I thought I had the shots. I wouldn’t go to the supermarket, I was ordering online because I was scared but now, I feel safer,” resident Ernestine Johnson said.

The road to get these shots wasn’t easy. After seeing there was a great need, community members reached out to the state, and ultimately to their local Giant food store, which set up the clinic.

“We’re upset because we can’t go to the grocery store or we can go out or go to the movies these patients are stuck in their rooms, so it’s just a new freedom for them within their facility to be able to get out and gather again,” Giant pharmacy manager Kathleen Hershey said.

That means new adventures and seeing the grandkids again.
