COVID-19 Vaccine and Booster Information
Vaccinate with Confidence
Bothwell is here for the community, providing free Covid-19 primary and booster dose vaccines. Learn more on the Vaccine Information page.
Due to a decrease in demand for outpatient Covid-19 treatments, Bothwell has closed its centralized outpatient management clinic and treatments are now ordered by local physicians from their clinics. Treatment is for people with a confirmed positive Covid-19 test who have a particularly high risk of progressing to more severe disease. These medications can significantly reduce the risk of deterioration, but only if used soon after the onset of symptoms. By the time a patient’s condition has worsened, it is too late to use these preventative treatments.
People who test positive need a prescription/order from a local physician. Contact your health care professional as quickly as possible after testing positive. Two of the medications can only be started within five days of onset of symptoms. People can no longer self-refer for infusions by calling the hospital.
