Fraser Health has released an emotional new video (seen below) showing the region’s first recipient of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The video includes footage of how the vaccine is stored, but it’s the moment when health care assistant Linda Latour receives the vaccine, administered by Kiren Hundal, an occupational health nurse, that is the special moment.
The entire room bursts out in applause.
It turns out that working in health care during the pandemic has kept Latour from seeing her kids.
“I’m really excited,” Latour says in the video. “I just want this all over. I want to be able to see my kids again.”
The moment was pretty special for Hundal, too.
“I’m emotional,” she says in the video. “We want this to end.”
