SHARE NOW

SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Beginning on Monday, Coosa Valley Medical Center will be offering the Pfizer vaccine to those 75 years and older.

Each morning, vaccinations registration will begin at 7:30 in the circle drive in front of the hospital.

CVMC plans to vaccinate 60 people per day. Vaccinations will be on a first come first serve basis. The first 30 in line will receive a card for a 9 a.m. appointment and the remaining 30 will receive an appointment for 1 p.m.

“We recognize that it is not necessarily a perfect process that we have created but we believe that it is one that will work for us,” said Chief Nursing Officer, Amy Price. “We also stand willing to recognize if it kicks off and is not working well, we may have to take a step back and regroup. If that happens, we certainly ask your patience with us in doing that.”

CVMC is experiencing heavy call volume and email inquiries about the vaccine. Phone calls to the CVMC switchboard related to the COVID-19 vaccine is causing difficulty for patient care. The hospital is asking the community to refrain from calling the hospital with inquiries about the vaccine.
