Singing River holds vaccine distribution at Jackson County Fairgrounds

‘Do what it takes’ that is the motto for Singing River Health System as they’re hoping to end the pandemic one vaccine at a time.

Today, Singing River delivered second dose Pfizer shots at the Jackson County Fairgrounds in Pascagoula.

They’re anticipating administering around 5,000 vaccines this week after already administering over 8,000 first dose shots.

While their primary care views these vaccines as ‘a ray of hope,’ we must not forget we are still in the middle of a pandemic. Director of Primary Care Jason Ely said, “What we want to do is we’ve noticed our hospitalizations have gone down some. Our positives have gone down some. We want to continue seeing this trend. We want people to continue wearing their mask, continue washing their hands, continue to socially distance until we get everyone vaccinated across the country.”

While the supply of vaccines is low, they’re administering vaccines as soon as they receive them.
