AFSCME Member at Toledo Medical Center Receives COVID 19 Vaccine

AFSCME Local member 2415 Tammi Renner received the Moderna COVID 19 Vaccine dose #1 at the University of Toledo Medical Center – as UTMC received 1,200 doses of the vaccine and started with front line workers to make vaccinations available to all staff 

Earlier in 2020, Local 2415 members at UTMC were part of a team that once again proved the hospital’s worth as a research, training and care institution by developing a COVID19 test that yielded much faster results than others in use at the time.

According to AFSCME Local 2415 President Randy Desposito, “This is exactly why we need to keep research, teaching, and care public hospitals like UTMC strong as an essential community resource. We have the people, expertise and equipment to make a difference, not just in Toledo but for everyone,” he said.

UTMC has also been tapped as one of 40 top hospitals in the country joining the government’s national “Big Affects” study to determine which treatments work best to care for COVID 19 patients.
