Covington Hospital ordering hundreds of new doses of pediatric vaccine

COLLINS, Miss. (WDAM) – Dozens of children in Covington County have received COVID-19 vaccinations, administered by Covington County Hospital.

About 300 doses of Pfizer’s pediatric vaccine have been given since early November.

The hospital has ordered more of that vaccine. It expects to get about 300 additional doses.

Children can go to several locations in and around Collins.

“We have them at our drive-thru on South Fir Avenue, where we give vaccines and do antibody tests,” said Clancy Sanford, marketing director for Covington County Hospital. “We also have them in our remote clinics in Simpson County, Smith County and Lamar County so those people have them in their communities too.”

Covington County Hospital has administered more than 20,300 doses of COVID-19 vaccines in the past year.
