On Monday, Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes, Indiana, administered its 10,000th dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine to a 74-year-old from Sullivan, Indiana.

Joe Hale and his wife, Judith, booked their appointments for Monday, and together, they received the 9,999th and 10,000th dose.

When Hale found out he was receiving the 10,000th dose and would be getting pictures taken, he said he felt like a “celebrity.” Hale said he was thrilled to get the vaccine, especially since he had the virus just 6 weeks ago.

“I feel a little safer, and hopefully it will turn out to be the factor of me not getting it again,” said Hale. "His advice to others about getting the vaccine, “Get it done. I think they would be smart if they got their COVID vaccine. It didn’t hurt at all.”

The Good Samaritan vaccine clinic is administering around 350 vaccines per day, six days a week. Current Indiana vaccine eligibility includes those 65 years of age and older, healthcare workers, first responders, and those who handle COVID-19 infectious material.
