Lt. Gov. recognizes partnerships and volunteers that help administer vaccines

Forsyth County staff, Northside Hospital Forsyth staff and volunteers received a personal thank you from Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan for their efforts in administering the COVID-19 vaccine to eligible residents during his visit to one of the County’s vaccination sites.

“The vaccination events held in Forsyth County have been a wonderful example of how multiple government agencies and local partners can work together to achieve a common goal,” said Lt. Gov. Duncan. “I want to thank all involved for their dedication and hard work to help administer these vaccines to residents.”

As of Monday, Feb. 8, over 4,300 first vaccinations had been administered through County vaccination events. In order to accomplish this, 107 County employees and 100 Northside Hospital Forsyth staff members worked at the County’s two vaccination sites. Once residents have received both doses, the County will have held 16 vaccination events (eight for the first dose and eight for the second). Residents who received their first dose from Forsyth County government were automatically signed up for their second dose.

In addition to County and Northside employees, volunteers logged 1,040 hours, assisting with various tasks including site management and registration.

“It takes partnerships to make events like this happen,” said Forsyth County EMA Director Chris Grimes. “We develop these partnerships over the years because you never know when we will all need to pull together to support our community.”

The County’s vaccine distribution is intended to supplement that of Public Health. Vaccines will continue to be provided by private physicians, pharmacies and Public Health, as available.
