On Ethernell Saxon’s 100th birthday, the Cherry Hill resident received her second dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at the Camden County Vaccination Center. On Wednesday, March 10, Saxon was accompanied by her daughter Cathleen and a presentation was made by the Camden County Commissioners.
“Ethernell will be celebrating a momentous occasion, the fact that she is two weeks away from 95% immunity from COVID, and that she has taken 100 trips around the sun,” said County Commissioner Jonathan Young. “More than 100,000 residents have had at least one dose of the vaccine and more than 42,000 have been given at the Camden County clinic. More than half of our vaccinations have been distributed to senior citizens and we want to keep providing hope to the people of Camden County that we are at the beginning of the end of this deadly pandemic.”
