The Moderna vaccine, to combat COVID-19, consists of two doses. YRMC personnel received the first dose during Phase 1A of the vaccination allocation plan in late December. Following the first dose, recipients were required to wait roughly one month before receiving the second dose. Erwin works in the IT department at YRMC. “We are protecting our staff and their ability to protect the community,” said Dr. Bharat Magu, YRMC ‘s Chief Medical Officer.
