A Shot Of Hope: UC Davis Nurse Talks About Getting COVID-19 Vaccine

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Two days after the first vaccine was given in Sacramento, CBS13 checking in with a UC Davis nurse who got the shot. 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. Donaldson remained cool, calm and collected while inoculating her colleague in front of dozens of eager media members and cameras. “I was preparing my station and they sat someone down in my chair, I didn’t know it was patient zero and the media started circling me. And yeah, that’s a high-pressure situation,” Donaldson said. But she delivered that vital first dose of hope. Soon after giving that shot, and dozens more, Donaldson received one herself.

Auburn Man Searching For Missing Goshawk, Malinka

AUBURN (CBS13) — A beloved trained goshawk in Auburn took flight after a scare with another bird, and now her owner wants her found. David Smith with his bird, Malinka. “Malinka is a goshawk. I think it’s Northern European for ‘little darling.’ She happens to be a hybrid. She is half Siberian. That’s the white color in her. A goshawk is a raptor, a hawk. It’s a forest hawk, not a falcon,” said owner David Smith. Smith purchased Malinka in May, raising her at his Auburn home and keeping her in a mews while he trained her for falconry. “With raptors and hawks and eagles, you train them through their stomach,” he said. The bond between the two is strong. “She is my girlfriend, don’t tell my wife,” Smith joked. About a month ago, Smith said he was excited for Malinka’s first free-release where she would work off-string, until the unthinkable happened. “A local coopers hawk took a swing at her and flew right at her, scared her and she went up into the trees and I’ve been chasing her ever since,” Smith said. Malinka…
