Healthworks Immunization Clinic

Hattiesburg Clinic partners with Forrest General Hospital to open HealthWorks Immunization Clinic

Hattiesburg Clinic and Forrest General Hospital are extremely grateful for the overwhelming interest in receiving COVID vaccinations at the Healthworks Immunization Clinic.  Through the clinic, along with Forrest General Hospital and Hattiesburg Clinic healthcare workers, we have vaccinated over 2,000 patients with their first dose in the fight against COVID-19.

Additionally, there are nearly 4,000 patients who are scheduled for their first vaccine in the next two weeks.  Once these doses are given to the patients who have already scheduled their appointments, we will have provided all doses that have been made available to us.

Due to limited vaccine supply, until further notice, we are no longer scheduling new, first-dose vaccines through the appointment desk, and we have closed online scheduling through Iris. We will reopen online scheduling through Iris if we receive additional vaccines in the future.

The Mississippi Department of Health (MSDH) is continuing their programs throughout the state, so we encourage our community members to book an appointment at one of their locations through the MSDH website https://covidvaccine.umc.edu/ or by calling (601) 965-4071 or (toll-free) 877-978-6453.

For those who received their first dose at the Healthworks Immunization Clinic, we plan to vaccinate everyone with their second dose as scheduled if we receive those doses from the MSDH.  If you have an appointment already scheduled for a vaccine (first or second dose) at the Healthworks Immunization Clinic, please keep your appointment.

We will update our patients and community as soon as information is available to us.  You can find our updates at:

Thank you for entrusting Hattiesburg Clinic with your care.

HealthWorks Immunization Clinic, a service of Hattiesburg Clinic and Forrest General Hospital, will begin offering COVID-19 vaccines to all health care personnel, long-term care facility workers and residents, and individuals 75 years and older, effective Monday, Jan. 11, 2021. Patients will be able to schedule an appointment through their Iris account or by calling (601) 261-1620.

For patient convenience, we ask that you fill out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) questionnaire and vaccine consent form prior to your appointment. Click to download the questionnaire and consent form. Please bring your completed forms with you to your appointment.

HealthWorks Immunization Clinic has been vaccinating health care professionals since Monday, Jan. 4, as a part of the first phase of the Mississippi State Department of Health’s (MSDH) COVID-19 vaccine rollout plan.

HealthWorks Immunization Clinic, which is located on the first floor of Hattiesburg Clinic’s main campus, located at 415 South 28th Avenue in Hattiesburg, will be open Monday – Sunday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The current vaccination options consist of a series of two doses, three to four weeks apart, where the first dose primes the immune system to fight the virus and the second boosts the production of antibodies. This vaccine can neither give a person COVID-19 nor does the mRNA interact with the DNA of a person’s cells.

Side effects may include short-term, normal responses such as headache, chills, fatigue, muscle pain or fever that only last for a day or two. A very small percentage of people developed short-lived symptoms at the site of injection. These are normal, healthy responses that indicate your body is building immunity to COVID-19.

Hattiesburg Clinic Medisync® Clinical Research was the sole clinical trial site in Mississippi for the Moderna vaccine, which is one of the available options, and helped gather data to provide evidence of 94.5% efficacy in preventing COVID-19.

HealthWorks Immunization Clinic will continue to offer the COVID-19 vaccine as long as it’s in supply.

As your trusted health care partners, Hattiesburg Clinic is committed to your health and safety. If you would like to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, please visit www.hattiesburgclinic.com/coronavirus.

Hattiesburg Clinic providers, Drs. Batson, Henderson, Liddell, Rouhbakhsh and Stewart, join to discuss the COVID-19 vaccines. Watch this conference to learn how the vaccine works, vaccine safety and effectiveness and who should receive it and projected timelines for vaccination.
