Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Vidant Health Update — Jan. 14, 2021

Press Release:

    Team member and provider vaccination efforts ongoing

    Vidant Health continues to receive weekly shipments of both the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine as allocated by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. As of Jan. 13, more than 6,113 team members and providers have received the vaccine. More than 2,502 team members have received both doses, completing their vaccine series.

    Community vaccination efforts begin

    Vidant continues to vaccinate a limited number of eligible community members. Vidant's limited appointments are reserved for community members at highest risk who have been identified through various channels including community partnerships and our patient database, MyChart. Vidant is not currently scheduling appointments by phone.

    Vidant is actively working to rapidly expand access to the vaccine in the coming weeks, including working with Pitt County to establish a large vaccination site, and other locations throughout the region. We thank the community for its patience as we work to expand access to the vaccine.

    Since Jan. 8, Vidant has administered the first dose of the vaccine to 581 community members.

    High numbers in the East

    As of Wednesday, Jan. 13, Vidant's system-wide census of hospitalized COVID-19 patients is 193. It remains important for our community to help flatten the curve by continuing to practice important safety habits: wear a mask, wash hands often and avoid gatherings.
