COVID-19 Vaccine Testimonials

“This is an incredibly exciting day. Preventing infection is Trillium's founding legacy. We remain true to our mission by participating in vaccinations. This is the light coming out of the darkness.”

- Dr. Robert Biernbaum, Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer, Trillium Health

“I participated in the original polio vaccine trials in grade school and watched polio disappear. I believe in the power of vaccines to eliminate diseases. This is important for both individuals and the community at-large. With COVID, if most of our community gets vaccinated and we achieve herd immunity, the virus has no place to go. We can stop COVID-19.”

- Dr. William Valenti, Senior Vice President for Strategic Advancement, Chief of Innovation, Co-Founder, and Staff Physician, Trillium Health

“It was important for me to come in and get the COVID vaccine today for my family, my friends and my co-workers... and their family and friends.”

- Tiera Proctor, Pharmacist, Trillium Health

“I got vaccinated for the safety of my patients and the community at-large, and to help end the pandemic.”

- Emily Duke, PA-C, Trillium Health

“As a woman of color, as a Black woman, as a Latina, I thought it was imperative (to get vaccinated) because my community and my family look to me for guidance... especially given our history with vaccines and healthcare in general. So, I wanted to come be the first to take the step towards everyone getting vaccinated so we can end the pandemic.”

- Bianca Castro, Trans/GNC Care Coordinator, Trillium Health

“My reason for taking the vaccine is to let the community know that we all should take this vaccine to see if we can kill the spread of the virus. I would like my family to be safe, as well as my children, friends, the people are around me, and the people I serve in the community.”

- Gerald (Tony) Skinner, Facilities and Transportation Assistant, Trillium Health
