Keeping your family safe and healthy

September 7, 2021

SSM Health is here to support you in your overall health and wellbeing. They have a few important reminders to share with you.

Vaccinations are now available at SSM Health primary care locations. They are working to make COVID-19 vaccine access as simple as possible. Now you can request and receive a COVID-19 vaccine at SSM Health Medical Group primary care locations in Centralia and Mt. Vernon, much like you would your annual flu shot. Schedule your appointment online or by calling 618-899-1919.

Masks are still required at medical facilities, regardless of vaccination status. SSM Health still requires all patients, visitors, and staff to wear masks while in their medical facilities. This requirement follows current CDC guidance and is meant to protect every patient they see. They encourage any patient or visitor to bring their own mask to wear while inside the facilities.
Effective Aug. 23, 2021, visitors at SSM Health locations will be restricted with exceptions for patients with disability, cognitive impairment, pediatrics, near imminent death, and in the OB unit. For specific details about their visitor policies, please call the office before your in-person visit.

Do not delay medical care. Whether you’re due for an important health screening or experiencing a medical emergency, SSM Health will continue to provide the safe, high-quality, personalized care you expect.

To learn more or schedule an in-office or telehealth appointment call your physician’s office.
