Covington County Hospital recently acquired the old Covington County Nursing Center across the street from Collins High School in Collins.  The hospital opened a Covid-19 vaccination drive thru in the building on Monday, March 15, 2021.

The vaccination drive thru will be open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  Patients wishing to receive their Covid-19 vaccination must make an appointment by calling 601-419-SHOT.

“We will still leave doses of the Covid-19 vaccine on our outlying clinics, such as Sumrall, Magee and Taylorsville, but this will give individuals in Covington County a central location to receive their Covid-19 vaccine,” said Santana Fulcher, CCH Clinic Director.

As of Monday morning, the hospital had doses of the Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, and Pfizer vaccine available.  Patients will be able to choose which vaccination they would like to receive depending on availability.

In addition to a vaccine drive thru, CCH will be moving some staff members to the facility for increased office space as the hospital continues to grow.

The Covington County Nursing Center has been empty since 2018 when the company that owned the building built Landmark of Collins.  Until CCH purchased the building, it was owned and managed by the City of Collins.
