(Aitkin, MN) — Riverwood Healthcare Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Taylor provided another update on the distribution of COVID-19 vaccinations and the brighter side of the Pandemic in the Brainerd Lakes area.

 Dr. Taylor mentioned that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are doing their jobs at much higher success rates than originally forecasted.

More vaccines are on the way to Riverwood from non-predetermined areas which have forced adjustments all around.

Early reports also support that available vaccines are covering the various strains of the Coronavirus.

Dr. Taylor also reminds everyone that just because a person has one if not two of the vaccine shots, that doesn’t guarantee not being infected with COVID-19.

Dr David Taylor also talked about working with local pharmacies on vaccine distribution, new vaccines on the horizon, and the latest guidelines with the MSHSL and local school districts. Listen to our full conversation with Dr Taylor here:
