Memorial distributes first-round COVID-19 vaccines in Diamondhead

Hundreds are on schedule to receive their COVID vaccine in Diamondhead today.

The vaccine distribution happened at Diamondhead City Hall courtesy of Memorial medical staff.  All those in attendance received their first dose of Pfizer vaccine.

Director of Clinic Operations Troy Pepperman says the turnout and experience has been exceptional. Memorial expects to administer anywhere from 400 to 600 shots during today’s distribution. “I’ve been working these since the first one. It’s great to see the people come in. They’re excited. Some of them are a little nervous about it. They don’t have maybe enough information, but they’re doing this for themselves or their family members or because of someone they’re around. Overall, I think it’s been a very positive experience for them.”

Everyone who received their first dose is already scheduled to come back March 30th for their second dose.
