Maritza Beniquez has stood on the front line of the battle against COVID-19 since this crisis began in the Spring. As an emergency room nurse, she has treated patients up close and seen the horrors of this pandemic in a way that most of us could never imagine. That’s exactly why it was so exhilarating to see her receive the first dose of the vaccine administered in our state, with Governor Murphy and First Lady Tammy Murphy at her side. The Governor and his team are now working to ensure that vaccines continue to be distributed equitably and efficiently, first to frontline health workers and long term care residents and then to more of the general population.
