Hi, I’m Dr. Dillon, Chief of Quality here at Mountain Home and a 21-year Air Force veteran. Most of my Air Force career was spent as a fight pilot, as healthy as could be. Several years after retiring I developed a life-threatening lung condition requiring an 11-hour surgery. It placed a big burden on everyone around me. Worst time of my life.
When we developed this vaccine, this weapon that targeted COVID-19, I got mine straight away in December — as protection for myself, my family, my friends, co-workers, and especially for all those who couldn’t take it. And not to take the vaccine to me would be contrary to the legacy of the Tennessee Volunteers. So, roll up your sleeve and take one for team USA.
If you’re a veteran or a caretaker, come to Mountain Home VA or VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic to get your vaccine provided at no cost to you. No appointment necessary.
