The decision was easy for Mary Shepard.

Shepard, a Hazel Dell resident, retired from a nearly 40-year career in medicine in 2015. But the COVID-19 pandemic pulled her back.

Shepard is now volunteering as part of a Kaiser Permanente push to vaccinate homebound folks in Washington and Oregon.

Shepard said it would be hard to watch but not help as America’s vaccination push kicks into gear.
