Sharp Coronado Hospital has been getting many phone calls and questions about the public rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines granted emergency use authorization from the FDA.
The team at Sharp Coronado Hospital is hard at work developing a safe and efficient process to vaccinate members of the community as soon as county, state and federal guidelines will allow us to do so.
Sharp Coronado Hospital is now actively working with the County to open an offsite Healthcare Worker appointment-only, COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic as early as Wednesday, Jan. 13. This is an offsite location and will not be located on the hospital campus. Currently the County has limited the vaccine to Tier1A (health care personnel and long-term care facility residents only). In cooperation with the County, we will be using the San Diego County website appointment system (sandiegocounty.gov, click on COVID-19) to do our part in getting the vaccine process moving along. Once the County authorizes additional Tiers to open, this community based COVID-19 vaccination clinic will open appointments accordingly.
“At Sharp Coronado Hospital, our health care heroes remain dedicated to caring for our patients and our community,” said Susan Stone, chief executive officer of Sharp Coronado Hospital. “During the past month, we have implemented a program to vaccinate each and every member of our organization with priority to our front-line staff and caregivers. We are committed to being part of the solution to provide greater vaccine access and are in dialogue now with the County and the City on how we can best move forward. Our team wants nothing more than to be able to once again spend time with our neighbors, friends and families, and wishes the same for every member of the community in this new year.”
