GMA COVID-19 Vaccination Update 5/10/21
Guilford Medical will be administering 2nd doses of Moderna vaccines this week for those patients who received their first doses on 4/14 and 4/15. These patients received their appointment at the time of their 1st vaccine. We will have a limited number of additional Moderna vaccines available for any other GMA patients over age 18. If you have not received a vaccine yet, we invite you to come to our Drive Through Clinic on Wednesday 5/12 or Thursday 5/13 from 5:00-6:00pm to receive your vaccine. Quantities of vaccine available may be limited by the number of doses remaining in an open vial to prevent waste. You can call the office to schedule your vaccine at 336-621-8911 to secure your dose.
Vaccination is our key to normalcy! Although numbers have improved significantly since January we have plateaued at a high number of daily cases in our community, particularly in our younger, unvaccinated patients. There is a legitimate concern that as the virus mutates we will see more aggressive variants that may eventually evade our current vaccines. The best way to prevent this is to suppress the virus as soon as possible with widespread vaccination. All available vaccines are very effective at preventing the current strains we are seeing in the US. So, if you have not been vaccinated, please consider attending one of our vaccine clinics or one of the other options in our community, listed below. Future GMA vaccine clinics will be posted on our website, www.guilfordmedical.com.
