COVID-19 Vaccine Info
On December 15th, 2020, our staff began administering the COVID-19 Vaccine to our frontline staff and leadership at Downstate. This is a very historic time for our country, as we begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel for the pandemic.
Please see a news clip from NEWS 12 below of our staff receiving the vaccine at Downstate. In the clip, you will see our staff putting up the ‘Peace Sign’, where the ‘V’ stands for Victory or Vaccine.
Crain’s Health Pulse NY also published a story that discusses staff inoculations at hospitals across the city and Downstate is mentioned. You can view that story here. In addition, photos of this historic milestone can be viewed below.
Thank you to all who work so hard as we continue to push through the pandemic.
