SMH to discontinue vaccination clinic
SHERIDAN — With roughly a third of the county’s population fully vaccinated for COVID-19, Sheridan Memorial Hospital will discontinue its vaccination clinic June 30.
“We have met our mission,” the hospital’s Chief Medical Officer John Addlesperger said of the clinic, which was launched in late January. “We have administered over 10,000 vaccinations. But demand is falling off rapidly and keeping that clinic staffed does not make sense — especially as three pharmacies in town and public health will continue to offer the vaccination.”
At the conclusion of the SMH clinic, county residents will have to be vaccinated at Sheridan County Public Health or at one of three local pharmacies: Walgreens, Walmart and Osco.
