A Message for Our Patients About Distribution of the COVID-19 Vaccine

About the COVID-19 Vaccine

The COVID-19 vaccine provides us with a powerful tool to combat this deadly virus, and the goal is to vaccinate all who want to receive it. As the review and approval process progresses, more vaccine will be available, but for now, the supply is limited nationwide.

The CDC has recommended a phased approach to the vaccination process. At this time, healthcare workers with patient-facing work roles who have the greatest chance of exposures to COVID-19 have been prioritized to receive the vaccine. Generally, this includes those who work in the ICU, ED, Urgent Care, and Med-Surg floors treating COVID patients. Staff and residents at long term care facilities are also among those prioritized to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Once the vaccine is more widely available, primary care providers, local pharmacies and health departments will also be able to offer the vaccine to the public. This is likely to occur in late Spring or early Summer. Please check back periodically for updates.
