100-year-old woman receives vaccine at UC Health

CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A Springdale woman recently celebrated her 100th birthday by receiving her second dose of the COVID vaccine at UC Health.

UC Health officials say Carolyn Salvato, a retired schoolteacher, arrived at UC Saturday with her son and daughter-in-law.

Salvato was originally scheduled to receive the second dose on Tuesday, Feb. 9 but the vaccination center was closed due to weather.

“It’s important to get it,” she said. “So [we can] stay healthy.”

Salvato was given a bouquet of flowers from health officials who were accompanied by the UC Bearcat.
