A couple from Boston celebrated getting their COVID-19 vaccine at Fenway Park — the exact stadium where they met and were later engaged.
Donna and Thomas Wall, according to their daughter Nicole Maynard, hold the stadium in a special place in their hearts.
The two first met at Fenway Park in 1967 and four years later, they were engaged, according to Nicole shared in a tweet.
Thomas revealed to ABC affiliate WCVB how the Walls in 2007 returned to attend a Boston Red Sox game — marking their 35th anniversary. But when they returned last week — it was to receive their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Vaccination today. Full circle,” Donna shared with WCVB. “Today I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief.”
Added Nicole in her tweet: “Another great day for my parents [at Fenway Park]… Thank you to all healthcare personnel involved.”
Donna shared how getting the vaccine meant the world for her and her husband because as they have been unable to see or hug their grandkids since last summer.
“For my granddaughter, especially, she’s just excited,” Donna explained to the outlet. “She told my son that she’s really excited about this.”
“It’s like a huge weight being lifted,” she continued. “I have a 93-year-old dad, so that’s been hard.”
Donna says she and Thomas plan to visit their grandchildren on March 22, exactly two weeks after receiving their second dose. She also shared how excited she was “to start this year with being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
“And, hopefully, maybe take the grandsons and the granddaughters to a ballgame,” she added.
