GENERAL UPDATE

In late December 2020, NEMS received a limited supply of COVID-19 vaccine. We have already started vaccinating our front-line staff and are working promptly to administer the vaccine to staff in our continuous efforts to keep all NEMS sites safe and healthy.

When vaccinations become available to the public, we will notify our patients on how they can receive the vaccine and in accordance with state and local guidelines.

We will also make information available on our social media and on this webpage. Please revisit this page at a later time for updates.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is a global outbreak that has affected people in many countries, including Mainland China and the United States. Local, state, and now the federal government has since declared public health emergencies in hopes of stopping the spread of this disease.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you have traveled to a country/region with cases of the new virus, and you develop symptoms, call your doctor and tell them about your symptoms and your recent travel.
