Important Community Vaccine Information:
Last week we were very excited to begin vaccinating our community members and neighbors. Following New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) directives we began with Group1a. Knowing the dangers of what we face every day with COVID-19, we couldn’t be prouder to help protect our community by administering these vaccines. With the announcement of the approval of administering to Group 1B, we immediately placed an order for more vaccines. We are currently awaiting delivery of that order. We have a plan in place to bring our guests in safely following all COVID safety protocols. We have an amazing team of clinical professionals ready to vaccinate and are looking to partner with our incredible EMS partners to enhance our team and keep the process flowing smoothly. Our courageous employees and EMS working together throughout this pandemic has been beautiful to witness and has saved lives. We know that will continue. We have also heard from trusted community physicians that they are willing to jump in and help administer vaccines with us. The spirit of volunteerism is alive and well and we are thankful for their commitment. This allows us to plan for even more in a timely manner.
We are also extremely proud to report that we did not waste a single vaccine dose. We were able to administer all of our initial doses to our LI Community Hospital Courageous Hearts as well as healthcare workers in group 1a. We will continue to prioritize vaccine doses for those group members as we progress.
Please keep your eye on the NYS DOH website for appointments as they become available and we will be sure to post here when we have further updates.
Thank you. Stay safe and get ready for your vaccine to come!
