A nurse at Covenant Medical Center was the first person in Lubbock to receive the emergency-authorized coronavirus vaccine Tuesday.
Noe Melendez works in the cardiac intensive care unit at the hospital. He said he had no reservations about getting the Pfizer vaccine and hopes more vulnerable people will be able to get it soon.
“I see people get really sick. I see the sickest of the sick,” he said. “If we can help curb that, that would be amazing for everybody.”
Melendez said the process was easy.
