First round of COVID vaccines continue

[KARE 11 News, January 02, 2021] It's been nearly two weeks since healthcare facilities across the state started mass vaccination efforts in the fight against COVID-19.

Vice President of Medical Affairs John Smyrski with Abbott Northwestern Hospital says they have vaccinated roughly 8,100 members of their healthcare team.

This is all in accordance with the health department's guidelines, vaccinating those in direct contact with patients along with those in long term care facilities first.

"It's not just the physicians and nurses. It's our translators, our patient transporters, it's our security, it's our phlebotomist, it's our technicians," said Dr. Smyrski.
