COVID-19 Vaccines Administered to MBSH Healthcare Workers

Employees at Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital began receiving their COVID-19 vaccines the middle of December.  It was a historic win for science to be able to offer this protection against the pandemic that has so long been a threat.  A number of employees at MBSH have received their first dose of the vaccine and are anxiously awaiting the second in January.  Employees who have received their vaccine include physicians, nurses, managers as well as facilities and maintenance staff.  Many expressed their pride in being part of this incredible milestone to help fight the spread of COVID-19.

Dr. Thomas Jackson, one of MBSH’s finest internal medicine physicians rolled up his sleeve to receive his COVID-19 vaccine.  He has been promoting the importance of getting the vaccine which produces immunity to protect the community.  On the same day, Carmen Bartolotta, VP of Patient Care and Chief Nursing Officer received her first dose.  She said, “This is a huge step forward for our team as we continue to care for the community.”

When Dr. Peter McCarthy, Medical Director of MBSH’s Emergency Department received his vaccination he said, “This is a critical milestone in our fight against COVID-19.”  With the immunity the vaccine affords, he will be able to more safely care for patients that come into the Emergency Department.  Robin Butts, Therapy and Wellness Manager said “I’m feeling hopeful for the future.”  The long months of fear caused by the pandemic are coming to an end with the protection the vaccine offers.  We are now starting to see hope in the horizon.
