Special to The Truth
On Thursday September 9, the Area Office on Aging held an event featuring food, music, vendors and vaccines at their 2155 Arlington Avenue location. The attendees who received a vaccine received a $100 grocery gift card per household
Both Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were available at the event. Those receiving their first dose or second dose were eligible for the grocery gift card. Those who are Aetna or Buckeye Community Health Plan members and were vaccinated at the event received an additional $100 gift card.
Regardless of whether or not someone was vaccinated at the event, those in attendance received free food from food trucks, prizes and giveaways, as well as valuable information provided by local physicians.
This event was provided with support from Aetna, Buckeye, Lucas County Children Services, YWCA, NHA, United Way of Greater Toledo, and the Sight Center.
