Bayhealth readies to Administer first Doses of COVID-19 Vaccine

Among the first healthcare providers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine on Monday, Dec. 14, Bayhealth stands ready to administer the doses to healthcare workers who are at the highest risk of exposure.

Immediately after arriving at Bayhealth, the vaccine doses were stored in specially designed freezers located at the Bayhealth Kent Campus with distribution to the Sussex Campus happening soon. Video of the vaccine arrival can be downloaded and used by media at the following link: https://vimeo.com/490805329/1db2f37ec7

Vaccine administration will begin within 24 hours. Distribution of the vaccine has been determined based on risk, meaning team members who come into the most frequent contact with COVID-19 patients will receive the vaccine first.

“The day we have been waiting for has arrived and Bayhealth is ready,” said Bayhealth President and CEO Terry M. Murphy, FACHE. “Throughout this pandemic, Bayhealth caregivers and staff have ensured our facilities are always safe, always open and always ready to care for anyone in need of our services. These vaccines will provide critical protection to our frontline workers whose lives are at risk every day due to COVID-19. I’m proud of how our team at Bayhealth has responded to this pandemic, especially as we take this first step to protect our entire community with the help of this vaccine in the months ahead.”

There is great interest by media outlets across the state to cover some of the first vaccine doses being administered. In order to best accommodate media outlets while also ensuring safety of individuals in the hospital setting, Bayhealth is partnering with WBOC-TV to provide pool feed coverage of the first vaccine doses being administered.
