DMC Primary Care Offering COVID-19 Vaccine
DMC invests in training and equipment to launch vaccine site.
Monday, June 7, 2021 Derry, N.H.—Following weeks of clinical staff training and the purchase of a special freezer to store vaccines, DMC was approved by the State of New Hampshire to begin administering COVID-19 vaccines.
“The vaccines arrived this morning at 8:45 am and we started immunizing our patients about thirty minutes later at our drive-up location in Derry,” said Vipra Rai, Director of Clinical Operations at DMC.
“We are carrying Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer vaccines. We are able to immunize more than one individual per car, so we are making it very easy for families who want to get themselves and their children vaccinated and safe for the summer,” she continued.
“As New Hampshire phases out its state-run sites, it makes sense to shift to primary care offices to administer these vaccines. Our patients have been asking when we will be able to offer them a vaccine and we are happy the time is finally here. In addition to the purchase of a cold storage freezer, our clinical staff has undergone between three and five hours of additional training over the past couple of weeks. We also have systems in place for NHIIS reporting. DMC feels strongly that this commitment on our part aligns with our mission and values and is an important step toward getting more people vaccinated,” said Daniel Waszkowski, MD, and Chief Medical Officer at DMC.
Whether it’s their first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, DMC patients who would like to be vaccinated should call 603-537-1300 to make an appointment.
