Memorial Hospital and Manor is here to provide you with an opportunity to receive your vaccination on Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 2-4pm.  We are currently offering the Moderna vaccination only.  Our clinic does not require an appointment and you may enter through Patient Access at the front doors of our main lobby and stop at the registration desk.  We strongly encourage you to vaccinate.  The number of Covid-19 positive community members is on the rise, with 100% of those admitted to our facility not having received the vaccination. All visitors need to be screened at entrance and will be required to wear a mask.

Covid-19 Drive Through Testing and other Testing Information
Memorial Hospital and Manor will be reopening the COVID-19 drive through beginning August 30, 2021 for the collection of symptomatic patients for COVID-19 PCR samples only due to the surge of test requests on our out-patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. The drive through will be available Monday through Friday from 1 PM to 3 PM and will be located at the front of the Hospital.   A physician/provider order will be required for COVID-19 PCR testing.  Please line up in the outer lane of the hospital breezeway on the date/time of operation for outside collection.  We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 surge and may adjust dates and times as necessary.

Preoperative patients and asymptomatic/exposure only patients needing COVID-19 PCR testing will continue to be registered & collected in the outpatient collection area inside the hospital along with any other lab work ordered on Monday through Friday from 7 AM to 4 PM.  Out-patient preoperative cases for asymptomatic COVID-19 PCR testing can be collected after hours for surgery cases by contacting the lab to set up an appointment and coming inside & registering through the Emergency Room in the event the surgery should occur the next day.

Testing continues to be available through the local Health Department Region 8-2, 6 days a week.  No order is required and testing is free.  Appointments can be made by calling 229-352-6567.  The COVID collection schedule is also available online at http://southwestgeorgiapublichealth.org,

Monoclonal Antibodies or Convalescent Plasma

What if you received passive antibody therapy for Covid-19 treatment?

  • Defer vaccination for at least 90 days after receipt of passive antibody therapy (monoclonal antibodies or convalescent plasma).  This recommendation applies to people who receive passive antibody therapy before receiving any Covid-19 vaccine dose and to those who receive passive antibody therapy after the first dose of a mRNA Covid-19 vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer) but before the second dose, in which case the second dose should be deferred for at least 90 days following receipt of the antibody therapy.
