Nurse for Nearly 60 Years Comes Out of Retirement to Help Give Covid-19 Vaccines

One Country – Jan 22nd 2021


Lydia Fielder, posted these photos of her grandmother, Karen, on Facebook along with a short and sweet caption that left us speechless to say the least.

"This is a picture of my grandma preparing a #COVID #vaccine at Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas.

She came out of retirement after working nearly 60 years as a nurse to help give vaccines.

She told me Sunday alone she gave over 200 shots... she turns 79 next week.

Grandma is one of the many unsung heroes in the fight against this pandemic. I am so proud to call her mine!"

We were honored to even be able to pass this feel good message along! Thank you Lydia, for sharing this post and please thank Karen for inspiring us all with her dedication to bettering others. All it take is one person to change the world!
