COVID-19 Vaccine Arrives at SCL Health


December 14, 2020 will be remembered as a historic day. This was the day the COVID-19 vaccinations arrived at our hospitals and a handful of frontline workers received their first dose.

The enthusiasm of those in the photos below capture the excitement many of us are feeling about this news as we do our part to protect those around us and to stop the spread of the virus.

This is a very historic moment for SCL Health and for healthcare as a whole. We would like to extend a thank you to all our frontline workers for their continued dedication to our patients and to remind everyone from within our community to continue to practice masking, social distancing and other safe and healthy habits to continue to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our communities.
