Pandemic still top of mind, firefighters have reached out to known homebound seniors in the city of Coronado to offer them vaccine help. Tippy Thibodeau was among the first to get vaccinated through this new in-home program after her appointments for the second dose of the COVID vaccine were canceled at the Petco Park super station. "It was down to just a matter of days before my deadline for the second shot," said Thibodeau. 81-year-old retired teacher and Coronado resident Tibby Thibodeau did not know what to do after her appointment at Petco was canceled twice due to delayed vaccine shipments. Just when she thought she was not going to get her second dose in time, a firefighter called her at home. "It was a wonderful surprise," said Thibodeau. A firefighter came to her house and gave her a second dose less than two hours later.
