COVID-19 vaccine updates

Pampa Regional Medical Center joined the rest of the country in welcoming the new COVID-19 Vaccine. PRMC was the recipient of 200 FDA approved Moderna vaccines as of Monday December 21, 2020. More have been requested since, however not received at this time.

We believe the rollout of the vaccine will lessen the severity of the impact that COVID-19 has had on our staff and our community. While not mandatory, we recommend you be vaccinated if appropriate.

If you qualify for a vaccine in Phase 1B: Please check the website of vaccine providers listed on the Texas COVID‑19 Vaccine Provider Locations map to see if they have enough vaccine supply at this time.
Remember:

  • Do not show up at a hospital or clinic looking for vaccine.
  • Instead please check their website for information about vaccine availability. Call if their website doesn’t answer your questions.

Vaccine supply is limited (but more arrives every week) and it will take time to vaccinate all.

Phase 1B recipients include:

  • People 65 years of age and older
  • People 16 years of age and older with at least one chronic medical condition that puts them at increased risk for severe illness from the virus that causes COVID-19, such as but not limited to:
    • Cancer
    • Chronic kidney disease
    • COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
    • Heart conditions, such as heart failure, coronary artery disease or cardiomyopathies
