COVID-19 Vaccine Update - February 26, 2021

CHP currently is reaching out to our patients in the 1B category for vaccination appointments. All vaccination appointments will be held at vaccine distribution points at their respective County Fairgrounds. CHP will be communicating with eligible patients through My Chart, by phone and by mail to set up vaccination appointments. If you are interested in receiving the vaccine and have not yet been contacted, or if you have been contacted but have had trouble signing up, please contact the CHP clinicwhere you receive care for assistance.

In 2020, many things stopped. Your vacation planning, routines, regular visits to friends, and even grocery store trips suddenly came to a halt. But the need for affordable, accessible health care did not.

At Community Health Partners, caring for our communities never stops. As the situation around us changes by the day, we find new ways to provide care to our communities, regardless of the circumstances.

As we go forward into 2021, we will vigilantly continue the best practices that promote a healthy and safe environment for our community. Whether that means consistent use of face masks and social distancing, or offering options like virtual health care visits, there are many ways we can provide community care in 2021 safely. Even in a pandemic, CHP will always provide a safe place to get the care you need.

You won't stop caring for yourself or those around you – and we won't either. We don't know exactly what 2021 will bring, but we'll be here, caring for you.
