Executive Leaders step up against COVID-19 to help strangers get vaccines.
“Their passion for the hunt is infectious.” – Jason Laughlin, Staff Writer, Philadelphia Inquirer
Meyer Executive Leaders, Melinda McCann and Alicia Karr, along with Melinda’s sister Mary Brady, have formed a group that is helping seniors find appointments for the COVID-19 vaccination. What started as a project to help their family has turned into a service for strangers who are challenged by the complicated navigation system.
Melinda, Alicia and Mary have successfully booked over 225 appointments for seniors. Many of whom are complete strangers. The trio has been connected to these strangers through Dr. Christine Meyer of Exton, PA. Dr. Meyer’s COVID vaccine finders Facebook page has over 25,000 members who are seeking vaccine appointments. The secret to finding a vaccine appointment is about persistence, technology skills, and speed.
“It’s been very rewarding and incredible to be able to help people who have been living in fear for over a year now,” said Melinda McCann.
