Knights of Columbus in Hot Springs Village help at the entry to the vaccination clinic at Balboa Baptist Church, requiring social distancing and appointment sorting.

The Daniel Patrick Sullivan Council 10208 of Hot Springs Village and the Fr. Victor A. Bieberle Assembly 2316, while participating in the annual Nine Days for Life novena, put their faith and resources into action. 

A local independent pharmacist, Dr. Michael Butler, was giving COVID-19 vaccines to health care workers through his Health Mart pharmacies and medical supply businesses.

When the second phase began, Butler moved the operation to a larger facility, Balboa Baptist Church. Forty-two Knights, including 30 Assembly 2316 Fourth Degree Knights, assisted in immunizing more 2,000 residents 70 years old and older Jan. 21-22. Twenty-seven Knights also volunteered Jan. 28 at the Church of Christ with 2,022 additional shots.

The Knights and other volunteers also will help with the second shots three weeks later. As increasing quantities of vaccine arrive, the Knights are committed to supporting the immunization effort for all residents in Hot Springs Village.
