Jarrett Bay Partnered with Vidant Health to Coordinate COVID-19 Vaccinations for Employees and Local Marine Businesses
Jarrett Bay Human Resources Director, Stacie Johnson took the helm of the opportunity after Vidant Health reached out to Jarrett Bay President Randy Ramsey. Working together with Eric Johnson of Vidant Health, Stacie was able to secure 400 vaccines – more than enough for Jarrett Bay’s employees and their immediate family members. With a surplus calculated, Stacie and other Jarrett Bay management team members contacted local businesses within the Marine Park and in the local area to offer their employees the vaccine as well.
“Stacie took the lead on this initiative and worked tirelessly to coordinate the vaccine clinic with Vidant Health,” explains Ramsey. “Her efforts were pivotal in getting the 400 vaccines secured that helped so many in our local community.”
Fellow marine sales, supply and service businesses within Carteret County were invited to Jarrett Bay for the vaccine clinic including 8 ½ Marina, Bluewater Supply, Bock Marine, Captain’s Shop, EJW Outdoors, Parker Boats, Shearline Boatworks, Starling Marine and The Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, along with numerous other local businesses.
“We are grateful to have been able to help our Jarrett Bay family and our boat business community on the Crystal Coast with a vaccine opportunity,” said Ed Stack, Jarrett Bay’s Vice President of Administration and Development. “We continually seek ways to give back to our area businesses, education centers and families, and greatly look forward to future opportunities.”
Although Jarrett Bay’s workforce, our families and many Marine Park tenants are now vaccinated for the novel coronavirus, elevated safety measures remain in place to ensure the Jarrett Bay family and our customers remain healthy and protected.
