“06880” has already saluted the COVID vaccinators as Unsung Heroes.
But a recent email got my attention. Susan Maya writes:
The hard working pharmacists at Walgreens are unsung heroes.
Rose Stillo and the pharmacists at Walgreens are busy vaccinating Westport, while still filling our prescriptions and answering our questions.
Staples High School Key Club members, wanted to say “thanks.” They put together goodie bags to thank them for all they have done over the past year.
Which got me thinking. Why not give a shout-out to all the vaccinators again? And everyone else who has made it happen: the Westport Weston Health District, officials who have turned places like Walgreens, CVS, hospitals, college campuses — and the Staples High School fieldhouse (for educators) — into vaccination sites.
But let’s also thank the people like the Staples Key Club, who go out of their way to make people smile in these still-too-difficult days.
Unsung Heroes is not a finite category. There are more than enough people doing more than enough good things these days. So if you’ve given a vaccine, helped someone get one — in a group or individually — or simply made someone at a vaccine site smile: You are our Unsung Hero!
