Bishop Ronald Gainer, who is in a higher-risk category, received the first of two COVD-19 vaccines on Jan. 20 at Penn State Health Holy Spirit Medical Center in Camp Hill. He received the vaccine from Sister Mary Vu, SCC, RN.
“As a religious leader, I think by example I can say that this is important for everyone to do who can,” the bishop said. “Getting the vaccine is certainly important and morally good.”
