THE COVID-19 VACCINE AT ALYN HOSPITAL

On December 30, 2020, Dr. Maurit Beeri, Director General of ALYN Hospital, received her first COVID-19 vaccination injection. To date, 320 of ALYN’s staff members have been vaccinated, as have 52 patients and high-risk parents.

Dr. Beeri, who you can see smiling, even behind her mask, said, “We are excited at the prospect of being able to concentrate on treating our patients without being worried about the infection. We are eager to hug our patients, to sit in the same room with our colleagues during meetings, to be able to celebrate and mourn face-to -ace and to stitch back the shredded fabric of our connections.
