Late last week, Brooks-TLC Hospital System, Inc. (BTLC) administered its 3500th vaccine dose to community member, Stephen Romanik, 20, of Silver Creek.
BTLC has been designated a vaccination site by the NYS Department of Health and regularly schedules public clinics for eligible community members as soon as vaccine supply arrives at the hospital.
“Vaccine clinics have become a well-oiled machine,” shares Ken Morris, chief operating officer. “Community members are typically in and out within 30 minutes, including post-vaccine observation time.” He adds, “The 3500 dose milestone is a testament to the outstanding teamwork among hospital departments. We are grateful to our staff for volunteering for this additional duty. The clinics have been a tremendous benefit to our community and we plan to continue offering the vaccine into the foreseeable future.”
Community members are encouraged to regularly check for new clinic appointments on the hospital website at www.brookshospital.org as new clinics are steadily added.
