COVID-19 Vaccine

Frequently Asked Questions

We understand you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, so we have answered some of your most frequently asked ones. 

COVID-19 Safety

We know you may be concerned about your safety when medical care is needed.  Whether it is a routine visit, for emergency medical care, a surgical procedure or to deliver a baby, we are here and we are prepared. Do not delay care or wait when a medical situation requires urgent attention. Our teams have put all protocols in place to ensure our care environment is safe for you and your family. 

Some of these include:

  • Isolating and caring for any COVID-19 positive patient in separate areas, with a dedicated care team
  • Ensuring our staff has all necessary personal protective equipment to provide seamless, safe care in the ER, clinics and throughout the hospital
  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitization measures for every area, including waiting areas, patient rooms and treatment areas
  • Screening every one of our physicians, Associates, patients and caregivers prior to entering any of our facilities
  • Requiring masks be worn by everyone in all of our facilities
  • Encouraging social distancing and hand washing practices

We encourage everyone to continue to do their part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Wearing a mask, frequently washing our hands and practicing social distancing by avoiding large crowds and gatherings will make a difference. By doing these things you will help protect yourself, your family, and others.

 

As we navigate through this phase of uncertainty, one thing holds true – our mission to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ remains today, tomorrow, and every day after that. CHRISTUS Santa Rosa ministry has been called to face every challenge – especially this one – head on. We are in this together.

Emergency Care

Emergency Care

While COVID-19 is new, our processes and procedures in place for infection prevention and preventing the spread of illness are not. CHRISTUS Health's Emergency Departments are equipped to safely provide care for life-threatening illness and injury – and seeking that care is essential. Do not postpone seeking care if you are urgently ill.  Go to the Emergency Department or call 9-1-1.

Spiritual Care

Our Spiritual Care Teams are committed to supporting the spiritual well-being of our patients and their friends and family, our staff and the community. This is true especially during times of illness and hospitalization. We serve all patients and families regardless of faith or affiliation.

Wear a Mask

Universal Masking

The health and safety of our patients, visitors and clinicians remains a top priority.  Visitors are required to wear a mask that covers both the nose and mouth. Visitors are responsible for acquiring their own masks (cloth masks are allowed).

We are aware of the new order announced by Texas Governor Greg Abbott that would lift the statewide masking mandate for many establishments on March 10. However, that will not apply to our CHRISTUS facilities. We will continue to require masks for those visiting, working or receiving care in any of our CHRISTUS facilities, per CDC guidelines, as well as hand hygiene and social distancing where possible.
