Covid vaccine event held at City Hall

On Thursday, Apr. 22, Health Systems 2000, the parent company of Home Health Care 2000, announced immediate availability of Covid-19 Vaccines, enabling the community leaders, city administrators and employees, and the local high school coaching staff to be vaccinated.

“Giving the general population in the city, the priority for vaccinations will benefit the entire community health,” said Stephanie Morris, BSN, Director of Public Relations at Health Systems 2000, the parent company of Home Health Care 2000.

Many have already taken the Covid-19 Vaccines. Lisa Walker, APRN, and Chief Executive Officer, for Health Systems 2000, recently committed to offering the Covid-19 vaccine as part of their organization’s community service. Walker stated that getting the vaccine is one of the easiest things that we can do to keep ourselves and the community healthy. And when we do that, we are preventing the spread of the Coronavirus, not just in ourselves and our family, but also in the communities where we live and work.

“Vaccines teach your immune system how to create antibodies that protect you from diseases.,” said Taylor Hext, RN, of DeQuincy and branch manager, for Home Health Care 2000 DeRidder. “It’s much safer for your immune system to learn this through vaccination than by catching the disease and treating it. Once your immune system knows how to fight a disease, it can often protect you for many years.” Hext administered the doses of vaccine at DeQuincy City Hall. The Home Health Care 2000 team, including Chris Beddoe; the newly added Business Development Director, who helped in spearheading efforts that assisted in the successful logistics and planning of the event held at DeQuincy City Hall on Friday, Apr. 23.

Covid-19 Vaccines will continue to be available. Call your local drug store, clinic, or doctor’s office to arrange future appointments for the vaccine.
