New Chapter of Hope Begins with Arrival of Vaccine
Wednesday, Dec. 16, 2020 marked a new chapter of hope when the COVID-19 vaccine was delivered to our medical center in Midland. The first to receive the vaccine was AJ Schafer, R.N., a medical ICU nurse, followed by the members of the health system’s vaccination team. A series of employee and provider clinics will be held in Alpena, Clare, Gladwin, Gratiot, Midland, Mt. Pleasant and West Branch, beginning with those who work in Emergency Departments, ICU, EMS, medical and COVID floors. In the coming weeks additional employee groups will be vaccinated based on the health system’s prioritization process.
“Our goal is to encourage people to receive the vaccine so we can help end this pandemic," said Lydia Watson, M.D., chief medical officer and senior vice president, MidMichigan Health. "We believe in the vaccine and the science behind it. We encourage you to educate yourself about the vaccine and recommend getting the vaccine when it is offered to you.”
