Covington County Hospital’s clinics received their first shipment of the Covid-19 vaccine on Thursday, January 7. The clinics will immediately begin taking appointments for vaccination from patients age 75 and up and healthcare workers. The first vaccines will be administered as early as Friday morning.

“The Covid-19 vaccine is our greatest hope and weapon to get this pandemic under control and return to some sort of normalcy,” said Dr. Harpreet Sood of Family Care Express. “It is a blessing to be one of the first institutions to receive this vaccine. I am proud on behalf of CCH, our clinics, and our staff to be able to provide this service for our local community.”

Patients will be asked to wait at the clinic for 15 minutes after receiving the vaccination in case of an allergic reaction. A second dose of the vaccine will be scheduled no earlier than 28 days after the first dose is administered.

“We here at Covington County Hospital’s clinics have an amazing opportunity to be one of the first in the state to vaccinate our patient population against Covid-19,” said Dr. Rita Redd of Family Care Magee. “I am excited to be a member of a health system that is at the forefront of fighting this virus.”

Patients who have recently been exposed to Covid-19 or have not completed their 14-day quarantine after testing positive for Covid-19 should not receive their vaccine at this time. Patients who have been positive for Covid-19 should wait 30 days after their quarantine is over to receive the vaccine.
