Hillcrest Henryetta has vaccinated more than 1,000 individuals since opening a public vaccine clinic on Jan. 5. Starting Feb. 3, the clinic begins administering second doses. To ensure supply, clinic administration maintains a vaccine reserve, so that second dose vaccines will be available. If inventories run low, the hospital will suspend first doses on new patients and redirect vaccines to meet second dose requirements.
“Making sure we have meet the requirements for a second dose is a top priority for us,” said Dee Renshaw, Hillcrest Henryetta CEO.
“Overall, the clinic is going well and the vaccine side effects continue to be minimal,” Renshaw said. “We’re continuing to work with the state to ensure we can provide vaccines as long as our residents continue to request it.”
The vaccine clinic is located at 1924 W. Main. Individuals can schedule first dose appointments at 918-650-1314.
