PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center will vaccinate its first group of caregivers on Wednesday morning, December 16, 2020. The Medical Center has received a supply of nearly 4,000 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine which will be distributed to caregivers in both Clark and Cowlitz counties.

The first vaccinations are expected to be administered each day at approximately 9:00 a.m. Because the vaccine supply is limited, PeaceHealth is prioritizing the first doses of vaccines for healthcare workers providing hands-on care to confirmed COVID-19 positive patients, as well as other higher-risk groups of caregivers providing face-to-face patient care. PeaceHealth St. John Medical Center is intending to begin caregiver vaccinations on Thursday, December 17.

As more vaccine doses become available, PeaceHealth will work through their “1-A” prioritization list, which includes:

  • Caregivers providing hands-on care to confirmed COVID-19 positive patients
  • Emergency Department caregivers with face-to-face patient contact
  • OB triage caregivers with face-to-face patient contact
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Urgent Care caregivers with face-to-face patient contact
  • Caregivers performing COVID-19 tests at designated testing clinics
  • Home Health staff who perform their duties inside the home
  • Caregivers entering COVID-19 units not performing direct patient care
  • Emergency Department caregivers who do not provide direct patient care
  • Lab services where COVID-19 tests are processed
  • Long term care caregivers
