It was a historic moment at UC Davis Medical Center Tuesday as Emergency Room nurse Eva Teniola became one of the first in California to receive Pfizer’s COVID19 vaccine. Heather Donaldson, a critical care nurse, described what it was like to be on the other end of the syringe. “It was actually funny because I had no idea I was going to be delivering the first dose,” Donaldson said.
