First COVID-19 vaccines at Plains Regional Medical Center

December 20, 2020 In the News

Dr. Mark Lockett, Medical Director of the Emergency Room at Plains Regional Medical Center, was the first in the facility to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

Lockett said afterward he had no reaction to getting the vaccine, and that the process had been straight-forward.

Clovis has been hit hard by COVID-19, particularly in November and December.

“I think that this is really an excellent way for people to cut down on the transmission of this thing,” he told the Eastern New Mexico News.
