103-year-old woman gets first COVID-19 vaccine for N.J. nursing home residents

A 103-year-old woman on Monday became the first resident of a New Jersey nursing home to be given a vaccine for the coronavirus.

Mildred Clements received the shot shortly after 9 a.m. as Gov. Phil Murphy and the state’s top health official were there to witness the event at Roosevelt Care Center in Old Bridge.

“We have gone through some dark times together,” Murphy said, “But the light is starting to break on the horizon.”
