With their support, SGMC was able to administer upwards of 500 vaccines daily. To date, the health system has provided more than 35,000 vaccines.

Even when the time spent outside was not always favorable, they stepped up and made a difference and for that we are grateful!  We are excited to have our volunteers back in our hospital assisting patients, families, staff and visitors.  They approach each day with a servant’s heart and it shows in their actions.”

COVID vaccination line volunteers included Patricia Colson, Sue Dean, Debbie Dowling, Brandon Dunton, Amhya Gibson, Carroll Griffin, Za’kariya Heath-Quinnie, Janice Langjan, Nicole Langoni, Mary Young Manning, Kristin McLane, Precious Mgbeahuruike, Vraj Patel, Yash Patel, Jade Phillips, Suzann Puckett, Deborah Sauls, Iwalant Shah, Cheryl Smith, Toni Snyder and Stacie Jo Zimmerman Staton.
