TMH Urging Boosters And Vaccines In Midst Of Surge

Taylorville Memorial Hospital urging vaccinations and boosters as they see more patients with COVID-19.


President and CEO Kim Bourne says that this month’s surge is record-breaking. 

Though the hospital is busy, they are not in crisis mode, but that does not mean that the community should ease up on COVID-19 mitigation. 

Bourne says that boosters have helped in most cases. Even if a breakthrough case occurs, the patient who is fully vaccinated and boosted is seen far less than the patient who has not received a vaccination at all. 

She also advises you to not delay emergency care when you become short of breath after testing positive for COVID-19. 

If you would like your vaccine or booster, contact your local health department or pharmacy. 


Kim Bourne appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
