Thursday morning, CaroMont Health recieved approximately 1,950 doses of
Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccination, designated for front line healthcare
workers. The health system's vaccination roll out follows prioritization
guidelines as outlined in Phase 1A of the state's distribution plan.
After 10 challenging months of the pandemic, the delivery of a safe and
effective vaccine was a welcome step forward in the fight against COVID-19.
The first vaccinations of front line employees are scheduled for Friday,
December 18 at CaroMont Regional Medical Center and expected to better
protect those employees at a higher risk exposure to COVID-19 as they
continue to work for the health and safety of patients and the community.
Mark Chaparro, Director of Pharmacy Services and Kristin Eginger, Pharmacy
Operations Manager inspect the delivery of Pfizer vaccine on Thursday morning.
