MaineGeneral's COVID-19 Response

We know many of our patients have questions about the coronavirus (COVID-19).

MaineGeneral is here for you and your family at this difficult time. We make decisions based on the best ways to protect our patients, staff, visitors and community.

Here's some information we hope you will find helpful.

Vaccination

Based on the current number of vaccine available and CDC guidelines, we are still in phase 1A. We are vaccinating high-risk health care workers only at this time. The biggest hurdle to beginning a larger vaccination plan is having the vaccine in hand.

MaineGeneral is working with the CDC to determine what locations in the greater Kennebec Valley could be used to hold centralized vaccination clinics in addition to what our primary care practices can provide.

We recognize the importance of getting the vaccine as quickly as possible and we are doing all that we can to help get our community vaccinated, and we will update vaccination information as more vaccine becomes available so you know when you may be able to receive the vaccine.
