COVID-19 Updates

Learn more about PHC's commitment to your safety.





Primary Health Care is committed to the health and safety of our staff, patients and community during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

Stay on top of the latest news and PHC updates regarding the coronavirus by clicking the button below. At this time, current PHC patients who are 65+ are eligible to receive the vaccine.

Because distribution and allotment are done weekly (decided by state/county), we cannot predict how many vaccine appointments we will have from week to week. Our staff will reach out to eligible patients when we have openings. You may also check this website and Facebook for updates. Please do not call our clinics at this time to schedule an appointment.
