Claiborne County Medical Center is committed to ensuring the safe distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to the members of our community in a timely manner. The global effort to eradicate COVID-19 with a wide-scale vaccination has required the largest mobilization of healthcare resources in modern times and is not without challenges.
All COVID-19 vaccines have been reviewed and approved by the U.S. FDA and the CDC, and many other public health agencies, and are safe for use in most adults. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines have been proven to be around 95% effective in preventing an individual from contracting COVID-19 when administered in two doses. For comparison, an annual flu vaccination is between 40% to 60% effective in preventing influenza.
As with all pharmaceuticals, we encourage you to discuss with your doctor prior to administration of the vaccine. To learn more about COVID-19 vaccines, please visit the CDC’s website for additional information.
Thank you for your extremely positive response to our COVID vaccination process. Our frontline healthcare workers greatly appreciate your interest and desire to help us end this pandemic.
