Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Vidant Health Update ó Jan. 19, 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. 18, more than 6,400 team members and providers have received the vaccine. More than 2,900 team members have received both doses, completing their vaccine series.

    Community vaccination efforts ongoing

    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 establishing other clinic 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 1,173 community members.

    Vidant and Pitt County announce plan to launch large-scale vaccine site

    On Monday, Jan. 25, Vidant Health and the Pitt County Health Department will open a large-scale vaccine site at the Greenville Convention Center for eligible community members to receive the vaccine, as defined by the state of North Carolina. Appointments will be required and scheduling details will be announced in the coming days.

    The public is asked to be patient as it will take some time to get all of those eligible vaccinated. The initial goal is to administer more than 4,000 vaccines per week. This number is dependent on the state's vaccine allocations.

    Community members can visit HERE to stay up to date on Vidant's vaccines efforts and sign up for email updates.

    High numbers in the East

    As of Tuesday, Jan. 19, Vidant's system-wide census of hospitalized COVID-19 patients is 203. 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.
