The vaccine is free to all patients, but insurance may be billed for the administration fee. No one will be refused a vaccine for inability to pay. Please bring your insurance card and photo ID to your appointment.
According to the Grand Lake Health System Chief Nursing Officer, Lana Hinders, eligible recipients will be able to fill out an online form available via the hospital website that puts the patient on a waiting list. Eligible patients, as defined by public health officials, will then be contacted by phone to schedule a vaccine appointment.
The hospital intends to use the hospital website, social media, and the patient portal to push information to the public regarding vaccine clinics. If you are a patient of Grand Lake Health System and wish to sign up for a patient portal account, please visit: http://www.grandlakehealth.org/followmyhealth.html

2nd What should I do if I have these symptoms?
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, first call your primary care provider. Please do not go directly to your doctor’s office or emergency department without calling first, since many can isolate at home without being evaluated in person.
Alternatively, Grand Lake Health System’s “Call a Nurse” service allows you to talk to a registered nurse who is trained to answer your health questions. The call center is open 7 days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 12 a.m., who can be contacted at 1-888-910-3335.
The best ways to protect yourself are by washing your hands with sanitizer or using soap and water for at least 20 seconds; not touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands; and avoiding contact with people who are sick.
If you are sick, stay at home, avoid contact with others, and cover your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.
Should I wear a face mask?
Yes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends wearing a facial covering. To learn more, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/diy-cloth-face-coverings.html
