NORTH CONWAY – COVID-19 vaccinations have begun in Carroll County. Mary Jane Elwell, a licensed nursing assistant at Memorial Hospital, became the first Memorial staff member to receive a COVID-19 vaccine this morning. Emergency Department Clinical Manager Erika Roy, RN administered the vaccine. The CDC and the New Hampshire Department of Health have prioritized health care workers, first responders, and the elderly as those getting the first doses.. Until a vaccine is available to everyone, it is important to continue masking, stay socially distant, and practice basic hand hygiene. Memorial Hospital continues to test individuals for COVID-19.
