During today’s virtual Town Hall Meeting at Mount Sinai Morningside, President Art Gianelli and Lead Patient Transporter and Messenger Andre Cooper both received their first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine!

Mr. Cooper, who has been at Mount Sinai Morningside for over 30 years, had the opportunity to share his thoughts moments before receiving his vaccine. “This is a serious thing to me, and people are losing their lives [to COVID-19],” said Mr. Cooper, “I still have my reservations, but there comes a time where you have to make a choice.”

In what was a very special moment for both Mr. Gianelli and Mr. Cooper, the two sat side-by-side as they awaited the administration of their vaccine. “I want to be there for my family, I want to be there for my friends, and I want to be there for my coworkers,” said Mr. Gianelli, “And the only way to do that is to get vaccinated.”

Congratulations to you both on your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine! And thank you for sharing the moment with us all.
