Arnot Health has been a regional leader in COVID-19 testing, and has also given more than 48,000 vaccines (first and second doses and boosters) to residents in our region to date. Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are usually available at all clinics. In addition, booster and third-dose vaccines are also available.
Vaccines are now available from many of our primary care providers, in retail pharmacies, and local county health departments. Arnot Health urges you to consider vaccination. COVID-19 is still a threat to our community.
Anyone age 5 or older can be vaccinated. Anyone 12 years of age and older is also eligible for a booster vaccine of Pfizer, 5 months after your second dose of Pfizer or Moderna and 2 months after your dose of Janssen (J&J). .
We understand some may prefer a particular brand of vaccine. But all vaccines, regardless of the manufacturer, will significantly improve our community's response to the pandemic. If you haven't already done so, get your COVID-19 vaccine or booster shot now!
While the CDC has loosened masking guidelines, they have not changed their recommendation that all healthcare facilities require the wearing of masks.
Arnot Health will continue to require masks in all our facilities. Patients with cancer, chronic illness, weakened immune systems and other conditions have an expectation that our environment will be as safe as possible. We take seriously our role as a protector of our community's health.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
