Walgreens distributed more than 100 Pfizer vaccines to an assisted living facility in Goleta today.

About 120 residents and workers at Mariposa at Ellwood Shores received the vaccine.

"We're trying to get all of our residents and our staff vaccinated so that we can hopefully start towards opening our community to our families and guests again," said Peter Bonilla, Mariposa at Ellwood Shores Executive Director.

Residents will need to receive their second COVID-19 vaccine dose in about three weeks.

Clinic staff say they're trying to get all of the residents vaccinated, so they can open their doors to visitors once again.
