Area hospitals are receiving the first batches of the Pfizer vaccine. On Thursday front line healthcare workers with Ascension St. Vincent will be vaccinated for the first time.
Similar to Deaconess Gateway, St. Vincent is gearing up for a trial run on several workers to get a better idea of how administering the vaccine will work.
Vaccinations at St. Vincent will begin this evening at 5:00. 44News will have a crew there for the historic moment, you can also tune in to our evening broadcasts for additional coverage.
