COVID-19 Vaccination Update

The Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention has announced that the next phase of COVID vaccination will likely begin in February. This phase – called phase 1B - will target those over 70 years old, and those with specific preexisting conditions. These vaccines will be administered in large clinics at a limited number of locations throughout the state. Redington-Fairview General Hospital has asked to be included in this plan.

The best source of information on when this will begin and how you will sign up for a vaccine is the Maine CDC itself. You may check their webpage at www.maine.gov/dhhs/mecdc, or follow the press conference held by Maine CDC Director, Dr. Shah, every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 2PM. The press conference is live-streamed on the internet (www.maine.gov/covid19/cdc-livestream), broadcast by Maine Public Radio and Television, and the details are reported in the local newspapers. As more information becomes available, this message will be updated, as will our website and Facebook page.

If you believe you are a phase 1A vaccine recipient– a direct health care provider or first responder – please email our pharmacy director Lisa Caswell at lcaswell@rfgh.net.

Notice from the RFGH Laboratory Department

If you are a patient coming in to our Laboratory Department, please use the hospital’s Emergency Department entrance when arriving for you lab work. This entrance offers the best access to our lab, and helps to reduce traffic through other areas of our hospital.

Please remember to mask up before exiting your car and approaching any of our entrances.

Thank you!

Should I Get a COVID-19 Test?

Maine DHHS issued a standing order allowing any individual in Maine who is at least 12 months of age or older to obtain a testing for SARS-COV-2 (COVID-19). This means individuals can seek testing even if they don’t have a primary care provider or a written order from a clinician if they face a higher risk of exposure, with or without experiencing symptoms.

Not everyone may need to get tested for COVID-19 however. Read more...
