Remember to keep your social circles small, socially distance yourselves and wear a mask! Local hospitals are receiving an overwhelming amount of calls from the general public asking for the COVID-19 vaccine. DO NOT call hospitals seeking the vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is not for the general public at this time. We are in vaccine distribution Phase 1A. That means vaccines are only available to healthcare personnel and adult residents of long-term care facilities.
