The Salem Memorial District Hospital has been included in the first phase of the High Throughput Vaccination program in the state of Missouri. Along with Phelps Health, we will be the consortium for Missouri local region I. The Salem Memorial District Hospital will be receiving a limited number of the Covid-19 Moderna vaccine during the month of February. This does not include the Covid-19 vaccination program being provided by the National Guard on Feb 11th and 12th (which will be the Covid-19 Pfizer vaccine).

Smoking Cessation Program

The argument that it is too late to quit smoking because the damage is already done... is NOT TRUE! It is never too late to QUIT. Whether new to smoking, or a lifetime smoker, quitting can make you feel better and live longer. The health benefits begin in as little as 20 minutes after your last cigarette!
