Nursing home has COVID-19 vaccine disco party

Brookfield’s Congregation Home threw a party Saturday – a COVID-19 vaccine disco party.

“It’s like a party. I’ll have a vodka martini, by the way,” said 86-year-old Navy veteran Robert Fischer, who is at Congregational Home for physical rehabilitation.

But the guests of honor at Brookfield’s Congregational Home were Walgreens and the Moderna vaccine.

“Our nursing home residents have endured 10 months of not being able to see their families. This is just the first step towards changing that,” said Catherine Solakian, director of admissions at Congregational Home.
