SKIPPACK — Mayank Amin, the owner of Skippack Pharmacy, which has vaccinated more than 30,000 people against the COVID-19 virus, was scheduled to be the virtual guest of U.S. Rep. Madeleine Dean at President Joe Biden's address to Congress Wednesday night.

The vaccination work by "Dr. Mak" and the Skippack Pharmacy has helped reduce the COVID-19 infection and death rate in the region.

“Community leaders like Dr. Mak are the true heroes of this recovery, and I am proud to uplift him and his story as my virtual guest to the Presidential Address,” Dean, D-4th Dist., said in a press release. “Skippack Pharmacy has been a leader in the region, thanks to support from the American Rescue Plan — I am thankful for the work Skippack Pharmacy and Dr. Mak are doing to ensure our communities are safe and healthy.”

“I am humbled at the opportunity to be a guest to President Biden’s joint address to Congress and accept this invitation on behalf of over 1,000 volunteers and team members who have sacrificed their time to help administer over 37,000 vaccines through our Skippack Pharmacy vaccine clinics,” Amin said.

“While the pandemic has physically distanced us and changed many things to virtual — it has given my community the opportunity to go from being strangers to coming together as one unit, one village, one family to combat COVID-19 head-on, together — we will beat COVID-19,” he said.

Amin and his pharmacy’s efforts to get people vaccinated have been covered by local and national media and he has been given the moniker ‘the superman pharmacist.’

Wednesday afternoon, Rep. Dean’s office will roll out a video showcasing his work. And Wednesday night, Amin was scheduled to participate in a Twitter takeover of Rep. Dean’s account (@RepDean) while watching President Biden’s address.
