As you are aware, the FDA has granted Emergency Use Authorization of the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Randolph Health is receiving vaccine each week and will be conducting vaccination clinics routinely. We have developed safe processes to ensure that we keep our staff, the community and the vaccine safe.
Following state and federal guidelines at this time we are able to vaccinate identified staff and community members that are in Group 1 and Group 2:
Individuals defined as those caring for COVID-19 patients, cleaning areas where COVID-19 patients are admitted, performing procedures at high risk of aerosolization (e.g., intubation, bronchoscopy, suctioning, invasive dental procedures, invasive specimen collection, CPR), handling decedents with COVID-19, and administering vaccine in initially closed or targeted vaccination clinics.
Adults 65 years of age and older.
To learn more, the state also has a special hotline set up where you can call 866-462-3821 for more information on the coronavirus.
