With a spike in COVID-19 cases in Hopkins County, please expect “longer than usual” wait times in the Emergency Department.  Rest assured we are doing everything we can to provide high quality care in a timely manner.  Thank you in advance for allowing us to provide for your healthcare needs, while extending grace to our staff.

COVID Vaccine Clinics

CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs will host a COVID Vaccine Clinic every Friday morning from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the main lobby of the hospital until further notice. The available vaccines include Moderna (2-doses, ages 18 and older) and Pfizer (2-doses, ages 12 and older). Appointments not required, but parent/guardian must accompany anyone 17 and younger.

The CDC recommends a booster for fully vaccinated people who received their second dose of Pfizer vaccine at least 6 months ago, and for those 65-years of age and older, and/or immunocompromised.  Right now, boosters are only recommended for patients who completed their Pfizer vaccine series and meet the current eligibility criteria.  Updates on a Moderna and Johnson & Johnson booster shot will be provided in the near future, as the CDC determines guidelines.  

Missing COVID card?

If you don’t have a MyChart account, you can call 903-885-3181 to get that setup. You will need a working email address. Or, you may contact Health Information Management.
