Last month we sent a couple emails to our patients about the COVID vaccine. While our office is not currently carrying the COVID vaccine, we are hopeful that in the coming weeks/months we will have doses to distribute to our patients. Currently, only the health department can determine who will receive the vaccine and our office has applied to distribute it. We will send an email to our patients if we are approved to distribute the COVID vaccine.
In the meantime, we encourage our patients to read more about the COVID vaccine on our website at https://www.coolspringsinternalmedicine.com/contents/patient-information/covid-19-vaccine-faqs. If you have any additional questions after reading our Q&A, please contact our office to speak with a triage nurse or make an appointment with your provider. If you want to keep up with the current Williamson County distribution plan, please visit http://www.williamsonready.org/341/Health-Department-Vaccine-Distribution or call (615)595-4880.
