We are proud to report that many IRMC and community frontline health care workers received the COVID‑19 vaccine. This keeps IRMC as safe as possible, so that we can continue delivering great care to patients like you.

We understand that the unknown and waiting can be difficult, but we promise to keep you informed. Please know we are doing our part to protect our region's health care workers and will alert you when it's your turn to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Here's what you should know:

  • Please DO NOT call IRMC’s scheduling center or main phone line to schedule an appointment. We will call you when it is your turn.
  • Please be prepared with your insurance card information when signing up. The vaccine is free, however, if you have health insurance, your insurance company may be billed an administration fee. There is no out of pocket cost and the vaccine is provided regardless of health insurance coverage.
  • Please do not show up for a vaccine if you do not have a scheduled appointment time. Walk-ins will not be accepted.
