Vaughan doctors get COVID vaccine this week

Dr. Kimberly Fountain, UAB resident hospitalist, receives the COVID vaccine on the first day of Vaughan’s vaccine clinic.

Vaughan Regional Medical Center will administer the COVID vaccine to individuals who qualify to receive it from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Distribution of the vaccine is in PHASE 1a, which means you can only get the vaccine if you are 18 or older and come in direct contact with patients in the context of healthcare delivery. Examples include physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, EMS personnel, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, dentists and providers of in-home care.

Vaughan received 900 doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine and began giving it to its employees and other healthcare providers Monday afternoon, officials said Tuesday.

MainStreet Family Care and Kids Street Urgent Care also have the vaccine, according to their website. You can register online at any of their clinics here.
