Resident, staff at SpringBrook in La Crescent get COVID-19 vaccine

About 145 doses were given

LA CRESCENT, Minn. (WKBT) – The COVID-19 vaccination effort is continuing in our area.

Residents and staff at SpringBrook Village in La Cresent had their opportunity to get the vaccine Monday.

About 145 got their first dose of the Moderna vaccine.

Staff say getting the vaccine is a positive step towards returning to a more familiar life.

“They’re not able to live life on their terms. And I think that’s our biggest goal here, is to be able to help people live independently and live a life that is conducive to letting them live that full life that everybody deserves,” said SpringBrook Village housing manager Tim Britain.

Springbrook will follow the guidance from the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health as to when visitors can come into the building.
