Singing River Health System events this week

Singing River Health System will be holding vaccination events this week in Harrison County.

The first will be Wednesday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Singing River will be distributing first doses of the Pfizer vaccine at Pass Christian High School.

On Thursday, SRHS will be at Biloxi High School in Spirits Arena to administer more first Pfizer doses.

Singing River Community Relations Liaison Sherri Bevis says while the school districts requested these events for their faculty, staff, and students, SRHS will not turn way anyone 12 and older with parental consent who shows up and wants the vaccine.

In addition to trying to get South Mississippi vaccinated, Singing River is also celebrating National Men’s Health Week. Bevis said, “Since COVID we have all kinda not taken care of ourselves. We’ve worried about COVID. We’re trying to get vaccinated, but we’re not doing our screening and we’re not doing our regular health things that we need to do to actually take care of ourselves. It’s just another way for people to become aware that it’s National Men’s Health Day and we want people to think about it.”

Singing River is encouraging everyone to wear blue on Friday to help bring awareness to National Men’s Health Week.
