In the News: Bridgewater Senior ‘Sets Example’, Gets COVID-19 Vaccine

Dee Wagner, 90 years old at Brandywine Living Vaccine Clinic

Bridgewater, NJ/Patch.com — There was no doubt in Dee Wagner’s mind that she would get the COVID-19 vaccine.

The 90-year-old who lives at Brandywine Living at Middlebrook Crossing Bridgewater said getting the vaccine is “the most important thing in my lifetime.”

She stressed the importance of getting the vaccine not only for herself but for the future.

“It’s almost like a duty. I’m just a 90-year-old setting an example,” said Wagner.

Brandywine Living has partnered with CVS Pharmacy as the clinic provider for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

“I think this is an incredible breakthrough to be able to have a vaccine so quickly,” said 95-year-old Kirt Wedemeyer, a Brandywine Living at Princeton resident.

Brandywine has already had several clinics completed that resulted in the inoculation of hundreds of residents and frontline team members.

Brandywine Living at Middlebrook Crossing, 2005 Route 22 in Bridgewater, is scheduled for their vaccine clinic on Jan. 29.
