CONE VACCINATIONS

Cone Health encourages seniors who have not yet been vaccinated to request an appointment at conehealth.com/vaccine. Anyone without internet access should call 336-890-1188 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. This is not a scheduling line. It only provides assistance for those 65 and older with submitting an appointment request. Cone Health anticipates anyone 65 and over requesting a vaccine appointment will be contacted to schedule an appointment within 14 days after they make their request.

HELPING SET OF PATIENTS

Wake Forest Baptist Health is providing COVID-19 vaccinations to patients 65 and older who receive dialysis treatment at the health system’s outpatient dialysis clinics in Winston-Salem and surrounding counties. By the end of this week, more than 350 patients 65 and older will have received their first dose of the Moderna vaccine at Wake’s clinics. More than 60% of the vaccinations are given to those in historically marginalized populations.

BUSINESS RESOURCE

Guilford County has set up a new educational website, healthyguilford.biz, aimed at supporting local businesses. The website provides guidelines, checklists and resources to help businesses ensure they are taking appropriate steps to comply with local COVID-19 safety protocols and keep their employees and customers safe during the pandemic.

CONE PHASING OUT CENTER

Cone Health is closing out its exclusive COVID-19 medical center at its Green Valley campus and transitioning care to four other hospital campuses. The closure will occur on March 5. After then, people with COVID-19 needing to be in a hospital will be cared for in Alamance Regional Medical Center, Annie Penn Hospital, Moses H. Cone Memorial Hospital and Wesley Long Hospital.
