MAKING VACCINES EASY AND ACCESSIBLE
Embry Health Offers COVID-19 Vaccinations
COVID-19 Vaccines were developed to help curtail the spread of the virus. The vaccine trains your body to trigger an immune response to the virus, so if you are infected, your body will recognize the virus and prevent it from spreading and causing you to have COVID-19. Though the vaccine itself is not COVID-19, it is an mRNA vaccine. The vaccine is instructions for your body to protect you from the virus.
Until the vaccine is accessible to all, it is imperative to continue frequently testing COVID-19 and antibodies. Embry Health will continue to offer vaccines for the coronavirus based on county availability and local eligibility guidelines.
