BERLIN — The first COVID-19 vaccinations were held at Walgreens on Pleasant St. in Berlin last Friday and they went off without a hitch, store manager Misty Coote said, thanks to the efforts of Walgreens pharmacist and employees.

Coote said that scheduled vaccine appointments will also take place this Friday, and her staff will once again be ready to assist the pharmacist.

Thirty shots were administered last Friday and more are expected to be distributed on Friday.
