We’re now offering COVID vaccine to our primary care patients aged 65+.  We are phoning patients in randomized order as limited vaccine becomes available. No need to call our offices or take any other action; we will be in touch.  Thanks for your patience; with 100,000+ eligible patients, it will take time to schedule everyone.
