COVID Vaccine Update:

Over 190 COVID-19 vaccines have been administered at CRNA. Healthcare workers continue to progress through the tiered rollout of the vaccine as they review prioritization tiers and vaccine availability. The Primary Care Team is currently preparing for its first large scale vaccination clinic, set for this coming Thursday, January 21st. Participation in Thursday's clinic is by appointment, for person's having already been screened to ensure their eligibility falls within the current open tiers as defined by state and federal governance. 
 
The success of a clinic this scale requires careful coordination. Because of the short shelf life of the vaccine, it is necessary to ensure it is used in a timely manner. One vial of the Moderna vaccine contains ten doses, all of which must be used within a matter of hours, leaving little to no room for patients to cancel or fail to show without risking the waste of a vaccination. Patients scheduled for Thursday's clinic are advised in advance to give adequate notice should they not be able to make their appointment, giving healthcare workers reasonable time to fill the open slot. 
 
Those who were vaccinated in the first weeks of the vaccines availability, are set to receive their second dose next week. Authorities are urging the public to return to the site of their first vaccination to receive the follow up dose. The primary reason being for the safety of the patient as it ensures they receive the same brand of vaccine each time. If you are a Copper Valley Resident over the age of 65+ and interested in receiving the COVID vaccine, call CRNA at 822-5241.
