The Greater Cincinnati couple celebrated their wedding anniversary by becoming the first patients to receive COVID-19 vaccinations at UC Health under Ohio’s Phase 1B, which provides immunizations to members of the community aged 80 and above.
Noel “Gene” Record, aged 93, and Virginia Record, aged 91, received the vaccine early Tuesday morning at UC Health’s drive-through vaccination site for members of the community. The Records, who live in Northern Kentucky, will return in three weeks to receive the second doses in the two-dose regimen.
“We want to get back to normal as soon as possible,” Mr. Record said. “I’m a square dance caller, and we have not been able to get together since March. We’re looking forward to people getting vaccinated and getting back to normal, where we can once again square dance and have fun again.”
“Get back to our normal life,” Mrs. Record added.
