Covid-19 Updates

Attention IMC Patients!

We are working with the appropriate organizations to obtain COVID-19 vaccines for you once they are available.

GOOD NEWS

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Emergency Use Authorization for two COVID-19 vaccines, and there are others that may be reviewed by the FDA in the future.

BETTER NEWS

We are actively working with the appropriate organizations to obtain the vaccine for you once it is available. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

The U.S. federal government and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have set up guidelines for distribution of the vaccine.

Those who are most at risk for the virus will be prioritized to receive the vaccine, including frontline healthcare workers and residents in long-term care facilities. The next group to receive the vaccination will be essential workers, whose crucial work cannot be done from home. Adults who have high-risk medical conditions or are over the age of 65 are also expected to receive priority for the vaccination. Currently, the vaccines have only been distributed to hospitals. 

We'll keep you posted with updates as more information becomes available. You can also learn more about the latest COVID-19 vaccine news through the CDC here.
