Dear Red Hook, Yacht Haven & Cruz Bay Family Practice Patients,
Red Hook Family Practice PC is registered to provide the COVID-19 vaccination. At present we are awaiting the delivery of the designated vaccines from the Department of Health who are rolling out a phased distribution of the vaccines across the territory. Patients who meet the CDC/ACIP criteria can currently go to the hospital to be vaccinated. East End Clinic (Tel: 340 775 3700 ext 2019) is also starting to book appointments from 11th January on Tuesdays and Thursdays for people who are in direct contact with public, frontline workers and 65 years and older. On St. John, Island Health & Wellness Center (Email: email@example.com) will be administering Covid 19 vaccinations.
Once we receive the vaccines we will be vaccinating our first responders in conjunction with VITEMA and will have specific clinics set up on certain days for our patients.
We will continue to update as we receive guidance and vaccines from the Department of Health.
