COVID-19 Vaccination Update

Memorial Regional Hospital is one of five hospitals throughout the state that will receive the COVID-19 vaccines in the coming weeks. Memorial Healthcare System is prepared to receive and properly store the COVID-19 vaccines and will follow the guidance of the CDC to administer the vaccines. The initial data and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines are encouraging, yet they are not the whole story. Equally as important as the vaccine is the practice of following safety guidelines: wearing a mask, practicing physical distancing and washing hands often.

For more information about the COVID-19 Vaccine and the Centers for Disease Control’s plan to make the vaccine available under Operation Warp Speed, please visit the CDC Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19 Vaccination.
