Redmond Regional Medical Center celebrated their 10,000th dose of the COVID-19 vaccine administered on Friday, March 26.

Redmond began their vaccine clinic in mid-December, administering the hospital’s first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to front-line colleagues at the hospital. Only three months later, Redmond recognized their Vaccine Team for their hard work and dedication in administering the vaccine to eligible members of the community with balloons, confetti cannons and cookies.

Dondra Crawford, clinical services manager with Redmond Occupational Health, and her team have been busy ensuring the success of the Vaccine Clinic since its beginning.

“The 10,000th vaccination marks a huge achievement for us and our community,” explained Crawford. “It is essentially a benchmark that we are using to propel us forward and continue to vaccinate the community at large.”

Audie Britton, pharmacy director for Redmond Regional Medical Center, stated, “Reaching this 10,000th dose mark is amazing, and I am so happy that we have been able to vaccinate members of our community throughout this unusual time.”

“The team behind the clinic has never once said, ‘no, we can’t do this.’ It has always been, ‘how can we make this happen,’” explained Britton. “Also, the support we have from our CEO, John Quinlivan, is second to none. From the very beginning, his goal was to reach as many people as possible. We are carrying out the hospital’s mission, and I am proud to be a part of that.”
