With 2021 under way, we are hopeful that the authorization of two COVID-19 vaccines will mean a return to many of the activities we miss most. At Grand View Health, we receive many questions each day about plans for vaccinating our community for COVID-19. So, we wanted you to know what we know as we approach our one-month milestone of vaccination distribution.
Since receiving vaccines on December 22, 2020, our physicians, nurses and all other staff are being vaccinated with the Pfizer BioNtech vaccine, following the guidance from the state and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This week, we started distributing the second dose to our workforce. The vaccine protects our caregivers so they can continue to safely care for you and all of our patients.
We are actively working with county and state officials to determine the role Grand View Health will play in giving out the vaccine to our patients and the general public, and we are focused on the timing and safe distribution of the vaccine.
Recognizing many of you are eager to receive the vaccine, we have developed a tool so you can indicate your interest in receiving one. By completing this form, we will be able to email you once a plan is in place. This webpage will be updated regularly as we learn more about the timing and delivery of vaccines, so please check back regularly. You may also access timely information about the vaccine and vaccine distribution on the PA Department of Health website.
While we share your optimism about the vaccine and the hope it represents, we cannot let up in our efforts to control this virus. We ask that you continue to mask up, covering your nose and mouth. Please remember to socially distance, keep gatherings small, wash your hands and remain vigilant. We’ve come too far to stumble this close to the finish line.
Your health remains our top priority as we enter the homestretch in fighting this pandemic, and we are committed to assuring you receive the care you deserve.
Thank you for your trust in Grand View Health.
