Carole veloso/rolling hills clinic executive director: "they feel they are a part of the community and are integral in all its growth.
They know the community needs to have vaccinated people to get the economy moving, to get everything open, and we had the opportunity so we did it."
And others who got their vaccine today were just as thrilled.
