COVID-19 Update

As your primary care providers, we at Ninth Street Internal Medicine and MDVIP would like to encourage everyone to receive the COVID-19 vaccine when it becomes available to them. We believe in both the safety and efficacy of this vaccine. If you would like to learn more about how mRNA vaccines work, we encourage you to visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/different-vaccines/mrna.html to learn more. Anyone who still has questions or reservations about getting the vaccine should schedule a phone appointment to discuss with your doctor. This vaccine is the best way for all of us to end this pandemic and get back to normal life!

We encourage everyone who is interested in receiving the vaccine to register with their local health department.

The vaccine is being offered in phases in an effort to get as many high-risk individuals vaccinated as quickly as possible. Please be patient as we go through these phases and understand there will be some variability based on your county of residence, and some of these phases will overlap. Currently we are in Phase 1a (healthcare workers and residents of long-term care facilities). Some areas are now starting Phase 1b (frontline essential workers, people over age 65, and younger adults with chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, heart disease, COPD, and others). There will be continued updates as vaccine is offered to additional groups, and checking your local health department website is the best way to know when it will be your turn.

We have applied through the Philadelphia Health Department to be a vaccine distributor, but we have not received any vaccine yet. We will send updates via email and the NSIM website if we are approved to distribute vaccine in the future. If you are offered the vaccine through your employer or pharmacy or local health department, you should get the vaccine that way. We will do our best to keep everyone updated as more information becomes available.
