Dec 29, 2020  -  As Polk County heads toward a likely record number of new COVID-19 cases this month, employees at Lakeland Regional Health who come into contact with patients started receiving vaccinations against the deadly virus today.

 

A little more than 200 employees received the Moderna vaccine today, according to Terry Hamilton, chief operating officer. It is being offered voluntarily to employees “who are at the highest risk of COVID-19 exposure from patients,” according to a hospital news release.

 

“We highly encourage our team members to consider receiving this promising vaccine,” said Dr. Timothy J. Regan, president of LRH’s medical center. “As an emergency medicine physician, I just received my vaccination and have full confidence in the science behind these vaccines. This is an important next step in keeping our team, patients, their families and our community safe.”
