TUESDAY, DECEMBER 29, 2020 PHYSICIANS: I have heard from many of you concerned about vaccinations, particularly those of you in private practice. The lack of information while you continue to see patients and take the risk of exposure is frustrating. I too am frustrated and have been sharing this regularly with local and state officials. Let me assure you, all of you are included in the upcoming tiers of Phase IA. The state and county are working on registration and distribution for health workers outside of the hospital setting and I will be sharing those details as soon as they are available. This includes physicians and their staff. To those ends, SDCMS is co–hosting a Clinical Town Hall tomorrow , Wednesday, December 30 th , from 6—7:30pm. The panelists will provide a COVID–19 Vaccine update to be followed by extended time for Q&A. You can join the meeting using https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82627323187 , or dial–in using 1 669 900 6833 or 1 346 248 7799 (audio only, you will not be able to submit questions). The webinar ID is 826 2732 3187. I know these are scary times as patient volume skyrockets and the disease spread is out of control. Please be safe, take care of your team, your family and yourself. Together we will get through this. As always, let me know if you have any questions! Paul Hegyi, CEO WHAT TO KNOW … San Diego Hospital Morgues Overflow as Coronavirus Surge Increases ?
