ROCHESTER, Minn. - Olmsted Medical Center administered its first doses of coronavirus vaccine Friday.
The healthcare provider vaccinated 12 front line medical workers, including Diane Schwarz, a nurse in OMC's emergency department.
Shwarz says as someone who takes care of patients with COVID-19 and sees the look of fear in their eyes, Friday was a very exciting day.
"It's been a very emotional moment. It brought tears to my eyes almost upon getting that shot," Shwarz said. "I'm just elated. I think this is just a great day."
Shwarz adds she believes the only way this vaccine is going to work is if everyone steps up and gets it.
