HOUSING AUTHORITY OF PLAINFIELD HOSTS WITH COMMUNITY PARTNERS, FOR SENIOR RESIDENTS, SUCCESSFUL COVID-19 VACCINE CLINIC
On February 26, 2021, the Housing Authority of Plainfield (HAP) hosted a vaccine clinic at their Richmond Towers property (510-520 East Front Street, Plainfield, NJ 07060). Richmond Towers is a senior housing complex with about 230 residents. For the event, well over 100 seniors participated in getting the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine.
Per HAP Executive Director – Randall Wood, “with HAP housing a vulnerable populace (seniors), and New Jersey being one of the hardest hit by COVID-19 by some measurements, it was imperative that the complex received access to the vaccine.”
Mr. Wood engaged his General Manager and Program Director to head up the efforts to procure and coordinate the COVID-19 vaccination clinic. After much deliberation and persistence, and ultimately a collaboration of community resources, the efforts came to fruition. Through assistance from, the Union County Health department (under Annie McNair), Plainfield’s Neighborhood Health Services Corp (under direction of Dr. Kerrie Powell), Mr. Sheldon Greene (OEM Specialist), and other local support, a vaccine clinic was established on premise to serve the need.
Per Mr. Wood, “kudos” to all in the community who helped, my staff, the Richmond Towers Resident Association, and special thanks to Mr. James Marsh and Mr. Darryl Clark for their persistence and diligence to facilitate this important event. Hopefully, we will be able to serve our remaining HAP residents and this will save lives of our vulnerable populace and others”. “We take safety and the pandemic very seriously and take every precaution that we can to protect our residents and community.”
