TriCounty Health Medical Advisor Encourages COVID Vaccinations for 70+
By Kristin Forbis, Jan 19, 2021
With the announcement that appointments are now being taken for community members 70 and older to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, a local medical professional has added his recommendation that all who can should take the opportunity to receive the vaccination. TriCounty Health Medical Advisor Dr. Karl Breitenbach shared the following: “This is a population that is extremely susceptible to the ill effects of COVID and we all know that while COVID can be mild in many people it isn’t mild in everybody so please get your loved ones scheduled. The sooner we develop immunity to this virus, and vaccination is the safest and best way, the sooner we can quit wearing masks and stop talking about it.” Dr. Breitenbach continued by encouraging all that are able to get the vaccination, explaining that COVID-19 is still very much in circulation and that the COVID vaccination has proven extremely safe and effective. To start the process of scheduling an appointment for someone age 70 and older, call 1-800-456-7707.
