“I don’t have a whole lot of time left and I sure don’t want to cause anyone else problems before I go,” Flores said, glad to be part of the vaccination process that will ease the grip of the virus.

Flores was not intimidated by the vaccine.

“Eh, just like any other shot. Painless, easy, except when the needle went in,” Flores said.

He said he is grateful for the time he has lived and looks forward to many more years.

From all of us at KENS 5-- Happy 100th Birthday, Eugene!
