MMC vaccine

Emergency Department employees Eva and Colten Thewis were the first to be vaccinated at Memorial Medical Center Monday. The couple got vaccinated together in honor of a close friend who passed away from COVID-19.

The first small trickle of COVID-19 vaccine arrived in the Bay Area Monday at Ashland's Memorial Medical Center.

MMC officials said frontline medical workers began receiving their initial injections that afternoon. Those workers will need to return in 28 days to receive second injections as required by Moderna, the vaccine’s manufacturer.
