We will continue to provide vaccine as fast as we can to our patients with the guidelines that have been established. Patients should be aware, however, there will likely be periods of time when the lack of supply will limit our ability to provide vaccines.
 
We ask that patients arrive for their appointment at the time scheduled because there is no waiting area within the clinic if they arrive too early and late arrivals may lose their appointment.

Both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were almost 95% effective in preventing Covid-19 infections in the recent studies that included over 75,000 people.
