JenCare Senior Medical Center Administering COVID-19 Vaccines

WHO: Some 200 at-risk New Orleans seniors ages 70 years and older, or on dialysis as prioritized by Louisiana Department of Health, are scheduled to receive COVID-19 vaccines from JenCare Senior Medical Center doctors, nurses and care team members. Many are willing to be interviewed and/or shown on camera before, during and/or after the first doses of the vaccine are safely administered.*

WHAT: Impactful images of and commentary about the COVID-19 vaccinations that are poised to give area elderly their lives back. The vaccines are providing the seniors with newfound optimism after 11 months of being lonely and socially distant, primarily staying in their homes and avoiding in-person contact, even with family members and friends.

* On request, JenCare can provide broadcast-quality, same-day unscripted video testimonials and b-roll, and/or high-resolution photos of the seniors being vaccinated.

WHEN: Thursday, February 4, 2021, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. CT

WHERE: JenCare Senior Medical Center
3530 Houma Blvd., Metairie, LA 70006 (near intersection w/Veterans Blvd.)

"We are well prepared to keep administering COVID-19 vaccines with ample cold storage and ludicrous safety."
