Commissioners Recognize Public Health Volunteers and Employees
Yesterday, the Hunterdon County Health Department held an appreciation luncheon for the hundreds of volunteers and employees who worked tirelessly to provide COVID-19 testing and vaccinations during the height of the public health emergency.
Hunterdon County Board Commissioner and Health Department liaison, Shaun C. Van Doren, joined by Commissioner Director Susan J. Soloway stated:
“Today’s luncheon was our small way of saying ‘Thank You’ to all of those who helped with COVID-19 testing and vaccination efforts – the volunteer response from organizations like
CERT, the Medical Reserve Corps, and local first responders was overwhelmingly positive and essential to helping individuals get vaccinated during this Public Health Emergency.”
While addressing the some 100 volunteers and staff, Director Soloway commented:
“Hunterdon County is fortunate to have such dedicated and passionate constituents who are willing to do what it takes to keep the County safe and healthy. From the 110 Medical Reserve
Corps volunteers who served as vaccinators and phone bank operators to the fifty CERT volunteers who were consistently available to provide support at our COVID-19 vaccination clinics; their hard work helped to administer over 18,000 Covid-19 vaccines! I am so proud of these women and men, for all that they have done and continue to do.”
