NCH employees are passionate about health and want to share their reason for getting their COVID-19 vaccine!
Mary is an employed mother of six with a puppy! If she can make time to take care of herself, can’t you?
If you have already been vaccinated, whether at NCH or another healthcare provider, we thank you! If you haven’t, it’s not too late to protect yourself. Vaccines are available for free at the five NCH Immediate Care Centers. The Mount Prospect ICC requires an appointment, and the other locations at Kildeer, Schaumburg, Buffalo Grove and on the campus of Harper College accept walk-ins.
Name: Mary Mata-Garcia
Title: Administrative Support Analyst
Department: Health Surveillance Unit/OEHS
Current hometown: Elgin
Why I got vaccinated: My 17 year old daughter and my dad are both immunocompromised and my 9 month old is still too little to get vaccinated. My love for them and for myself was why I got vaccinated.
