Johnson & Johnson vaccine available in Edna on Thursday

Rogers Pharmacy in Edna plans to have daily appointments distributing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

 

EDNA, Texas – On Tuesday, Rogers Pharmacy held a vaccine clinic held in Edna.

Harold Fowler, the pharmacist, who has been doing his job for thirty-one years said the Rogers family knew for 2 months they would receive the Moderna vaccine shipment.

They were planning to administer them to the most vulnerable customers.

“I think when they left, they felt very encouraged. Of course, we did thank them for coming to get it and I was proud to be able to assist in the safety of all our patients. We weren’t really quite sure, we had no assurance about when we would receive it and so we were very glad that we did get what we got. So we were hoping for more, but that’s what we’ve got, so we’re trying to get those out as quickly as possible,” Fowler said.

As the pharmacy had the public’s health in mind, they were able to contact elderly customers by using their patient database.

Then assuring elderly customers were called first for treatment. Fowler was glad that he and his sons could help the community.

Focusing on proper care for everyone, Fowler even chose to greet them as they walked into the pharmacy, so they could feel more at ease before getting the vaccine.

John Rogers, whose family owns this pharmacy, and many others around Victoria played an essential role in getting them shipped from the state.

“I know Rogers Pharmacy is, the whole Rogers family is super proud just to be able to play a part in getting these vaccines into people’s arms and just trying to get things back to normal,” John Rogers said.

On Wednesday, March 3, they finally finished administering all Moderna vaccines.

Luckily they plan to carry out the Johnsons & Johnsons vaccines on Thursday, March 4. In addition, this pharmacy located at 1013 South Wells Street Building B. Edna, TX 77957, will be available for daily appointments.
