GMA Update 5/27/21
Guilford Medical will offer drive through Moderna vaccinations on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00pm for any current GMA patient over the age of 18. With the recent CDC update relaxing restrictions for fully vaccinated people, we strongly encourage all individuals over the age of 12 to be vaccinated. Please call 336-621-8911 to schedule your vaccine. We continue to recommend that patients with compromised immune systems and everyone who is not fully vaccinated (defined as 2 weeks after the final vaccine) wear a mask when indoors around people outside of your household. At this time, based on CDC recommendations for healthcare settings, we will continue to require masks for all people entering our office in order to protect all of our patients. Now is the time to get vaccinated to protect yourself and to help us move beyond COVID in our community and nation! For additional vaccination options and updates, please continue to check this website.
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 one of our drive through vaccine options or one of the other options in our community, listed below.
