COVID-19 vaccine: Now is the time
Entrust FDA-approved vaccine like you’ve entrusted PAM during pandemic
Throughout the pandemic, PAM Health has been at the forefront of patient and employee safety. PAM was quick to act in taking preemptive steps in securing PPE and was proactive in installing cutting-edge technology like the IVP indoor air protection system, which eliminates the airborne transmission of SARS-CoV-2 to control the spread of COVID-19.
For months, our masked employees stood tall when there was no vaccine available and helped PAM navigate through the pandemic as safely as possible. When the vaccines became available last winter, the country found a sense of hope there was light at the end of the tunnel.
But COVID-19 hospitalizations have, again, begun to surge and that feeling of uncertainty is creeping back into the minds of Americans.
The FDA has recently approved the Pfizer vaccine for the prevention of COVID-19 in individuals 16 years of age and older. The vaccine also continues to be available under emergency use authorization (EUA), including for individuals 12 through 15 years of age and for the administration of a booster shot for certain immunocompromised individuals. It is our hope our patients put the same trust into the vaccine that they put in us for top-quality care.
With booster shots potentially coming soon for the most vulnerable populations, we urge everyone to get vaccinated to protect yourself, your family and anyone you come in contact with.
As we approach the last quarter of 2021, PAM will continue to walk step-by-step with our patients to ensure they always receive the care they deserve.
