Christmas came early at Bay Breeze Senior Living and Rehabilitation Center in Gulf Breeze as residents and staff got the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine Tuesday morning.
Joe Rich, pharmacist at the Gulf Breeze CVS just down the road, administered the vaccine to a staff member and resident outside the facility — the first doses in Gulf Breeze. After each shot, staff cheered.
“I didn’t feel a thing,” said 91-year-old Eileen Costello.
Costello said she’s been watching CNN and following the news around the vaccine. She had no reservations about getting it.
