COVID-19 Vaccine Update: January 20

Mid Coast Hospital is excited to be able to offer COVID-19 vaccination to eligible people in our community.

On January 25, Mid Coast Hospital plans to open a large-scale regional vaccination clinic at Brunswick Parks & Recreation. Vaccination will be accessible to not only patients, but all community members who meet the Maine CDC’s criteria for eligibility, which includes individuals over the age of 70 at this time.

Ability to give vaccinations is dependent upon eligibility requirements determined by the Maine CDC as well as availability of vaccine. Currently the demand for vaccines exceed the supply, but this expected to improve in the coming weeks.

To ensure patient and staff safety, vaccination is by appointment only. Over the next few weeks, eligible patients of Mid Coast Hospital and Martin’s Point Health Care will begin to receive invitations via email and phone with sign-up instructions and directions. Invitations are being sent in phases as appointments and vaccine become available.

In addition to this outreach process, anyone in the community can visit or call (877) 780-7545 to use MaineHealth’s automated COVID-19 Vaccine Assistant, which helps determine eligibility and connects with a MaineHealth vaccine scheduling team.
