Community Memorial is pleased to announce 2 COMMUNITY COVID-19 Vaccine distributions, scheduled for Tuesday, March 9th and Wednesday, March 10th. Both PODs (point of distribution) will be held at the Masonic Lodge in Hamilton, on Wes Road.
Community Memorial was able to receive 500 doses of the Johnson & Johnson single-dose vaccine. Those eligible at this time are Community Memorial hospital inpatients 65+, 18-64 with comorbidities, non-hospital 65+ years of age. Community members interested in vaccination are encouraged to review criteria and signup for an appointment time at the below links which will be opened for scheduling on March 7, 2021.
A collaboration between Community Memorial, the Madison County Department of Health and Colgate University has allowed the successful scheduling of these vital PODs, in a concentrated effort around public vaccination and the fight against the COVID virus. Any community members that have questions around the COVID vaccine or their personal vaccination need should consult with their primary care provider.
