An Update for our community on the COVID-19 Vaccination Process
We are currently in Phase 1 of our COVID-19 vaccination plan. This means we are vaccinating front line staff and physicians with first responders to follow. We have started initial planning for community vaccinations, but we have not received enough vaccine supply at this time. We are working closely with our state and local leaders, and we will keep everyone informed as more vaccine doses become available and we are able to expand vaccination capability. The most effective safety measures we can take against COVID-19 continue to be wearing a mask, washing our hands, and maintaining social distance. We remind our community not to delay care. Our hospitals are open, safe and ready to care for you.
