Crossing Rivers Health Staff Receive COVID-19 Vaccine
Prairie du Chien, WI – December 30, 2020 - Underneath her mask, Crossing Rivers Health Urgent Care Physician Assistant, Jeanne Tobin, was all smiles as she was the first staff member to receive the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine earlier this week. Tobin shared, “I got my vaccine to protect friends, family, and our patients. I’ll protect myself to protect you.”
On Tuesday, December 22, Crossing Rivers Health received notification they had been allocated doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. After receiving all necessary supplies, vaccination clinics were able to begin for Crossing Rivers Health staff.
“This COVID-19 pandemic has been a long journey for all of us. A vaccine does not mean that it’s over quite yet, but having the vaccine available to our staff is an exciting turning point in this journey. This will allow us to protect our valuable staff, our patients, and our communities,” shared Jenny Pritchett, Chief Clinical Officer at Crossing Rivers Health. “We strongly recommend and encourage community members to educate themselves on the COVID-19 vaccine, which is the type of COVID-19 vaccine currently available.”
