Oaklawn begins administering COVID-19 vaccine to staff

Today marks an exciting day at Oaklawn as we began administering the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine to our employees! Our critical care specialists and pulmonologists, Carlos Martinez, M.D. and Alcides Gil-Acosta, M.D. were the first to receive the vaccine. (Shown administering the vaccine is Thomas Neidlinger, M.D.)

No one tool alone is going to stop the #COVID19 pandemic. A combination of getting a COVID-19 #vaccine, wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, and washing your hands often are all needed. #DoYourPart
