OakBend Medical Center began administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine on December 23rd, starting with hospital staff on the front lines against the pandemic.

 

The vaccine was then administered to local first responders in our communities.

January 21, 2021:

We have received our allocated second doses of the COVID19 vaccine and are administering it to those who received their first dose at OakBend Medical Center. Those who are in the vaccine window for their second dose (no sooner than 26 days after the first dose) will get a text message inviting them to schedule an appointment and giving them available slots for those appointments. Scheduling must be done via the link included in this message and OakBend staff do not have access to the schedule. Recipients of the text have 7 days to make an appointment for their second dose. If an appointment is not made within seven days, the dose will be released. Please do not try to get an appointment for your second dose. Links for self-scheduling are exclusive for the recipients of the vaccine and cannot be forwarded. Once used, it will expire and be invalid. 

As of this writing, we have not receive allocated doses for public distribution.  Please stay tuned to this page for updates and email us at info@obmc.org with any questions.
