Trigg Hospital To Take Appointments For COVID Vaccine Distribution This Week

Trigg County Hospital has received 400 Moderna COVID-19 vaccinations and will be distributing them beginning Tuesday.

Hospital Administrator John Sumner tells the News Edge they will continue accepting vaccine appointments Tuesday morning at 8:00 for those in 1B. The appointments will range from 12:30 to 3:30 Tuesday afternoon and from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Appointments can be made by calling Trigg County Primary Care at (270) 522-0898 and choosing option one.

Sumner adds the community is excited the hospital was finally chosen as a regional COVID-19 vaccination site.

All vaccinations will be distributed at the Trigg County Recreation Complex in the Lexie Bush Convention Center.

Sumner says in addition to the extra doses this week, they will be handing out second doses for those scheduled to get them on February 11. He adds those people are asked to come back during their same appointment time Tuesday morning to receive the second vaccine.
