Protecting Yourself and Others from COVID-19

TM

All of us at Eagle, like you, are overjoyed that the vaccine for COVID-19 is now being administered in our community. 

 

The state of North Carolina has prioritized, in phases, who are eligible.  Those who are 65 years of age and older are now part of the eligible group.  Our providers recommend getting the vaccine.  There are no contraindications unless you have had a severe allergic reaction to any of the components of the vaccine.  Precautionary questions will be asked before you get the vaccine.

 

At this time, private physician offices are not part of the distribution chain for the vaccine.  However, Guilford County Health Department and Cone Health are receiving some allotment of vaccines.  For Guilford County Health Department, please call 336-641-7944 or visit www.healthyguilford.com for additional information.  For Cone Health appointments, please call 336-890-1188 or visit

As we all patiently wait our turn for the “jab”, please check out www.yourspotyourshot.nc.gov to Find Vaccine Locations as they are opened.  You’ll also find these helpful fact sheets there as well to learn more about the vaccine itself and the which phase you are be eligible for.

 

As we learn more, this information will be updated on our website and patient portal message. 

In the meantime, remember your 3-W's as your best protection:

  • Wear a face covering

  • Wait 6 feet apart

  • Wash hands frequently

Stay Healthy
