WAVERLY, Iowa (KCRG) - A 112-year-old mother from Readlyn and her 92-year-old son received their COVID-19 vaccines together in Waverly on Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, Esther told UnityPoint Health the secret to long life is real potatoes and gravy.

Readlyn's Esther Wittenburg (112 years young) and Virgil Bock (her 92-year-old son) were excited to get the vaccine at our clinic in Waverly! Esther's secret to long life? Real potatoes and gravy. 😄
